Event description
Ethnographic Research Methods for the Arts and Humanities

About this Event

Ethnographic research methods such as participant observation, fieldnotes and interviewing are commonly used in the Social Sciences and are being adopted and even re-shaped by Arts and Humanities disciplines through collaborative and creative practice, and through encounters in museums, archives, galleries and other cultural spaces. Over two online sessions, members of the Cultural and Museum Studies Catalyst, arts practitioners and anthropologists will introduce you to some of these methods, giving you opportunities to learn about the many ways ethnographic research can be undertaken and to discuss your projects with experienced ethnographers. You will also carry out some practical ethnographic observation and take fieldnotes to work through some of the key challenges and opportunities for undertaking ethnographic research from an arts and humanities perspective.

This event is aimed at PhD students in arts and humanities disciplines registered at Scottish universities and who are in the early stages of their research (normally first or early second year).

The event will take place over two sessions - the first on 4 March 2021 from 10.00 - 12.30 and the second on 16 March from 14.00 - 16.30. Participants are expected to attend both sessions. Should you find that you are no longer able to attend, we ask that you de-register as soon as possible, as there is a waiting list.

Please note that if you are interested in learning more about ethnographic research methods, but are not able to attend this session, you may want to consider an online course we offer at the University of Aberdeen, Introduction to Ethnographic Research Methods.
