The work of authors such as Edward Said (1978) has placed this weakening of cultural boundaries more overtly within an ideological perspective. Said's sustained commentary of the orientalism of western observation has served to strengthen the case that traditional ethnographic texts have a privileging effect. That is, the cultures which have been represented have been reduced to the subjugated and muted objects of a dominating discourse. In enumerating and classifying the exotic characteristics of the oriental, then, the privileged observer has established a position of authority, which is inscribed in the texts of exploration, description and classification (Marcus, 1992).

More generally still, the ethnographic tradition in the United States and literary genres have displayed intertextual relationships over many decades. The styles of urban realism, the literary creation of characters and types in the city, and the narrative imperative of modern fiction - these have all contributed to styles of ethnographic representation. The systematic analysis of these intertextual relations may be a fairly recent preoccupation (for example Van Maanen, 1988; Atkinson, 1990), but the genres were more 'blurred' than the simple developmental model from Denzin & Lincoln would suggest.
