ANTH 302W - Designing Ethnography


2 credit(s)
One of the aims of anthropology is “to grasp the native’s point of view, his relation to life, to realize his vision of his world.” Anthropologists employ many strategies, methods, and approaches to understand this point of view and related cultural context. This class is designed to give students hands-on experience with research design and qualitative methods as well as build awareness around the benefits and limitations of such methods. The course begins with an introduction to ethnography as a way of collecting empirical data and as a way of thinking. We then explore specific methods, while students develop their own research proposals and IRBs.
Offered: Annually.
