Anthropology 310: Fieldwork in Ethnography
Faculty: Robert O’Brien, Anthropology, Temple University
This is a methods course. We will learn how to conduct an ethnographic research project. Although there have been numerous critiques of ethnography from every imaginable theoretical perspective, in this course we will not engage significantly with any of those debates. Students should think of this as an introductory course. No single methods course will encompass all there is to know about ethnographic fieldwork. You will learn what options are available to you and how to think about putting them together in a research project.
