Anthropology and Psychoanalysis: An Encounter through Culture

By Suzette Heald; Ariane Deluz | Go to book overview

NOTE
1
The fieldwork upon which this article is based was carried out mainly in Ubagubi, a village of Gimi-speaking people in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, and covers a span of a dozen years. My work began in 1973-4 with twenty months in the field, followed in 1975 by a further six-month stay, and then continued, in the form of intermittent summer visits of three to four months, until 1985. The impetus for my original research among the Gimi was to describe the society from a female point of view, to use women’s own accounts, life histories, attitudes to men, etc., to portray the lives of both sexes; but my work expanded to include men’s views (see Gillison, 1993).

During the period of fieldwork I was married to David Gillison, a photographer and rainforest conservationist. Accounts of events that transpired inside men’s houses are compilations of reports by Gimi men of four initiations that occurred during the period of fieldwork. Many informants’ comments and explanations were inspired by tape-recordings made during the proceedings by David Gillison.
