DOING ANTHROPOLOGY: ETHNOGRAPHIC METHODS
Credit points: 15
Doing Anthropology introduces students to the practice of Ethnography. Ethnography is qualitative social research, of relatively small scale, usually focused on a single setting or group. Data are collected through a range of techniques employed in fieldwork, but the emphasis is on participant observation and informal interviewing. Through class discussions and practical experience, students become familiar with these techniques.
