November 2021—April 2022
Understanding the Ethnographic Journey
The Circle is a series of informal, multidisciplinary discussions which alternate presentations by leading ethnographers with group sessions where participants reflect on their ethnographic research practices. In short: an ethnographic self-help group. Participation is open to Warwick students/faculty from all departments and is extended to students from other DTCs. This is the seventh edition of the event which is organized by the IKON research group, PPI group at Warwick Business School, and organized with the support of the ESRC DTC Warwick.
New ethnographers are often told that ethnography cannot really be taught, it must be learned through doing, which can be a daunting task for most of us. In this year’s ethnography circle, we want to address this issue by exploring the core aspects of ethnography through doing. We will conduct self-help workshops where we learn from each other how to do observations, note-taking, and writing and as always learn from eminent scholars in the field about their experiences of ethnographic research.
Locations will be variable for the events. The speaker sessions will be hybrid from 15:00-16:30. The workshops will take place in person or online from 15:00-16:30.
Sessions held on campus will take place at the Warwick Business School, University of Warwick, CV4 7AL Location details can be found here.
Online participants will be able to join via Zoom.
