Ethnographic Methods and Practice
Laura Scudder Conference Room, Roosevelt Hall
The purpose of this module is to introduce the students to contemporary ethnographic methods and practice. During the 3 hours seminar students will learn how to conduct ethnographic fieldwork, analyze ethnographic data and frame an ethnographic study. The focus will be on the application of this set of methods to understanding real world issues in context. Connections between traditional forms of ethnographic enquiry and emergent computational methods will be emphasized. The seminar will assume the students are familiar with the basics of social research.
