Session 1: Ethnography and Modern Languages and Cultures
These sessions will introduce researchers to theories and methods associated with ethnography. The first session will focus on what ethnographic praxis can bring to languages and cultures research more broadly, particularly in terms of epistemology and researcher reflexivity. The second session will focus on ethnographic fieldwork methods and experiences, including different approaches to ethnographic research as well as practical advice and guidance.
The course runs over two 1-hour sessions and participants will be expected to view recordings and participate in additional online activities (which should take roughly 2 hours in total). The live sessions will involve small- and large-group discussions and those who register should be prepared to interact with the session leaders and the other participants.
This session has been organised by the Institute’s Fieldwork and Modern Languages Research group, chaired by Prof. Claire Griffiths: https://modernlanguages.sas.ac.uk/about-us/online-resources/fieldwork-and-modern-languages-research.
Session Leaders: Dr Naomi Wells and Dr Ainhoa Montoya
