Deep hanging out is the phenomenon that takes place when an anthropologist is immersed in a cultural experience where they are then able to observe what typically end up being the most poignant insights of their research.

The validity of deep hanging out as a practice is debated in the anthropology community


Deep hanging out was coined as a term by Clifford Geertz in 1998, with his book Deep Hanging Out.
