|Transcribing everyday life|

In recent years, the interview has become as important a method for anthropological research as participant-observation. In this paper I explore some of the implications for the ethnographic method of what this method reveals and what it conceals. In the process, I also consider how anthropologists might best understand what neither interviews nor participant-observation captures well -- the hidden or inexpressible aspects of daily life.
