As a sociological method, ethnography refers to the qualitative description of human behavior, based on intensive fieldwork. The Ethnography Workshop is open to students and researchers who are interested in the broad range of participant observation, field observations, and ethnographic methods. During the workshop, we will cover all components of an ethnographic research project.
Course will include lecture, discussion and exercises. Following topics will be included:
- An overview of different ethnographic approaches
- research design
- the theory/practice of field work
- how to analyze the field data
- how to write up findings
