Writing Ethnography

As the fall semester winds down I find myself looking forward to the spring semester and teaching Writing Ethnography-and advanced undergraduate class that teaches students the ethnographic process and how to write a ethnographic account. Unlike the field school, students will pick their own research sites and spend 10 weeks doing ethnographic observations.  Their final products will be an ethnographic account (usually 30-45 pages) and an public oral presentation of their findings.

I’ve been working on a student textbook to use in this class and the field school. My plan is to pilot the text next semester, so I’m busy writing and editing a digital text that will include supplemental readings and assignments and links to real student projects.

I’ll be posting regular updates here during the semester.
