Waka Aoyama, An Intimate Journey: Finding Myself Amongst the Sama-Bajau
Price: $59.95

I do not think that An Intimate Journey: Finding Myself amongst the Sama-Bajau was either Waka Aoyama trying to write about the other or trying to write for them; it was her attempt to hear them with much sincerity and honesty. Having auditory hypersensitivity and a tenuous ‘self-other’ boundary as she admits, at the end of her charming journey Waka Aoyama has arrived at a place no one has yet explored. This work is a gem of fieldwork of ‘response-ability’, and a song in response to Writing Culture, edited by James Clifford and George E. Marcus. ------- Hiromu Shimizu, Ph.D., President of the Japanese Society of Cultural Anthropology, and Professor Emeritus of Kyoto University
