ANTH 310 Ethnography

Ethnography is anthropology's hallmark methodology; a dynamic way of seeing and living in the world of the other. This is a project-intensive course examining the ways in which anthropologists conduct ethnographic research and write ethnography. Students will practice a variety of ethnographic fieldwork techniques including, but not limited to, participant observation, field note-taking, interviewing, mapping, photography, and film production. We will examine a few key ethnographic works, several anthropologists' reflections on the practice of ethnography, and a variety of analytic and interpretive approaches to the production of ethnography. This course is an elective in the Sociology major and minor programs. (1) Lecture: 3 hrs/wk. 1 Unit
