In the mids, I specified two modes in which ethnographic re- search was embedding itself within the context, of a historic and con- temporary world system of capitalist political economy 56, The most common mode preserves the intensively-focuserl-upon single site of ethnographic observation and participation while developing by other means and methods the world system context. Examples of these other methods include working in archives and adapting the work of macrotheorists and other kinds of scholars as a mode of contextualiz- ing portraiture in terms of which the predicaments of local subjects are described and analyzed. In this mode, a vital literature continues to appear on the historic colonial and contemporary incorporation of peoples as working classes or on the apparent reduction of local cul- tures by the macro-processes associated with capitalist political econ- omy in the many forms it lias taken e. Such ethnography has produced refined examinations of resistance and ac- commodationa conceni with the dynamics of encapsulation, focused on the relationships, language, and objects of encounter and response from the perspectives of local and cosmopolitan groups and persons who, although in different relative power positions, experience a pro- cess of being mutually displaced from what, has counted as culture for each of them.
