Abstract [en]

Based on extensive research on university-community collaborative education projects in southern California and southern Sweden, this article proposes two roles and a research strategy/approach as elements essential to sustained collaboration. Recognition and fulfillment of the roles of “spider” and “firesoul,” while “leading with the little finger,” contribute to educational anthropology by linking qualitative/ethnographic research with university and community learning, practice, and service in a process of involvement
