As part of its Advanced Training Programme in 2016-17, the University of Warwick ESRC DTC is supporting 'The Ethnography Circle', a Warwick Business School and IKON initiative. For more information on The Circle and upcoming events connected with this, please see below.

The Ethnography Circle

November 2016—March 2017

Making Waves: the Aftermath and ‘Impact’ of Ethnography

The Circle is a series of informal, multidisciplinary discussions which alternate presentations by leading ethnographers with group sessions where participants reflect on ethnographic research practices. The Circle will run in Terms 1 and 2 of the academic year 2016-17. Participation is open to all Warwick students/faculty and is extended to students from other DTCs. This is the third edition of the event which is organized by the IKON research group.

As hinted by the title “Making Waves: The Aftermath and ‘Impact’ of Ethnography,” this year we will explore exactly what happens when fieldwork concludes. Ethnography takes place through a dialogue between the researcher and those who make up the field investigated in a relationship with unclear consequences.

This important yet often overlooked aspect of ethnography is what we plan to focus on. In five meetings we will discuss how ethnographers exit the field, present their findings to informants and the outside world, and what outcomes might ensue. We plan to draw on the experience of the audience, cases of ethnographers dealing with the (good and bad) outcomes of their work, and the expertise of guests whose work illustrates these issues.
