Abstract

As the framework chosen influences the research design, the types of questions and problems examined, the approach to data collection, analysis, evaluation and the writing of a summary of results, it is key to be mindful about the methodological approach chosen for your study. Ethnographic research refers to a form of social-scientific research in which the researcher immerses himself/herself in the field of study in order to understand in-depth a social phenomenon, group or culture. The Ethnographic Research Workshop is open to students and researchers who are interested in ethnographic research and its methods and techniques: e.g. different forms of observation, interviews, writing field notes, ethnographic data analysis and the reflexive stance. During the workshop, we will cover all components of an ethnographic research project.
The course will include lecture, discussion and exercises. Amongst other topics the following topics will be included:
- What is ethnographic research
- Short history of ethnographic research
- Ethnographic data collection methods
- Reflexivity in ethnographic research
