Being There: Method in Anthropology (ANTH2631)
UNIT OF STUDY
Anthropology's distinctive method, termed ethnography, requires the researcher's involvement as a 'participant observer' with the group of people being studied. This unit takes a practical approach to the study of ethnography, developing students' understanding of the foundational role of field research in the creation of new knowledge in the discipline. Topics covered include: history of the method; diversity of research topics and settings; research ethics, design, techniques, and analysis. Students will devise and report on their own project.
