Ep 10: Fieldwork Q&A with Vera Ferreira & Hugo Cardoso (Part 2)

Today’s episode is part two of our Q&A episode with Vera Ferreira (CIDLeS & ELDP) & Hugo Cardoso (University of Lisbon). In this episode, we discuss questions from listeners such as “How can fieldworkers deal with the often tragic and uncomfortable circumstances in the field?”, “How can we reduce our environmental impact in the field?” and “How to deal with difficult recording situations”. Just a reminder, the responses to these questions are based on our own experiences in the field and do not necessarily reflect best practice (i.e., your mileage may vary).
