Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

"Ethnography " offers a theoretical and practical introduction to Ethnography. It is divided into three organizational units: In the first meeting (Oct 2010) we will discuss general issues of the theoretical foundations of ethnography.

Based on this theoretical introduction students will create their own empirical "mini-projects" in order to study the application of different ethnographic research tools. These projects will be the main target of the following two meetings (Nov and Dec 2010) as they provide us with the opportunity for a deeper discussion of ethnographic research strategies and for methodological reflection. In the last meeting (Jan 2011) results of the „mini-projects“ are presented.
