Seminar on 18th Oct. 2011

From the next week onwards, we will read chapters from Doing Fieldwork: Ethnographic Methods for Research in Developing Countries and Beyond (2005) by Wayne Fife. We will begin by exploring methods for macro-level research. Macro-level methods are important for ethnographic research because we cannot truly understand a local phenomenon without contexualising this in a broader picture.  In the next week’s seminar we will learn how to use historical sources for ethnographic research (Chapter 2).
