Whatever they substantively study, ethnographers’ closeness to their interlocutors’ lives and the shared challenges they face in writing and working through evidence makes their work distinct. The Ethnography Workshop is thus designed as a space where students and faculty can workshop their papers and field notes across substantive concerns, and think both through and beyond their observations.
The working group is open to graduate students and faculty at any stage of their research projects, from those who are only now thinking of a field site, to those drowning in field notes and in the throes of writing; both from NYU and beyond. Workshops will be alternating with the Sociology of Culture workshop on Fridays from 12:00-2:00pm in the Memorial Room (4130).
Organizer: Lynne Haney and Iddo Tavory
