The Center for Global Ethnography announces Doing Ethnography Remotely, a six-video interview series on methodology, and a live question-and-answer session with expert remote ethnographic researchers, held online on Friday, June 5th from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM (PDT).



In a series of pre-recorded video, available here for viewing, Sharika Thiranagama (Anthropology) and Sylvia Yanagisako (Anthropology) speak with experienced ethnographers on how they have used digital and analog methods for remote ethnographic research. The conversations reflect on how these methods have shaped each practitioner’s research questions and findings. All conversations conclude with practical advice for graduate students adapting their projects in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.


On June 5th, you are invited to a live Q&A-panel that will extend this conversation to a broader community of ethnographers across the disciplines. Using the RSVP form, or by emailing David Stentiford [] directly,  graduate students may also submit questions for our panelists prior to the event or ask the panel during the moderated live session. Online question submission will close 48 hours prior to the event.  If you would like to attend the Q&A session, RSVP here.
