SOCY 7701 Ethnography Practicum (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

This is a hands-on practicum. Class participants engage in ethnographic research projects of their own choosing. During the semester, students read and comment on each other's field notes and analyses, as do I. By the end of the semester, everyone produces a research paper based on their ethnographic work. Many of these projects become masters papers or parts of dissertations. During class sessions, we discuss theory and data, fieldwork and writing, emotions and analysis, as required by the specific project at hand.
