Doing Ethnography Remotely
Monday, June 1, 2020
The Center for Global Ethnography announces Doing Ethnography Remotely, a video-interview series focusing on how researchers have used remote methods in their work.
Through interviews with six ethnographers, the Center’s co-directors Sharika Thiranagama (Anthropology) and Sylvia Yanagisako (Anthropology) explore how scholars have used digital and analog tools to study communities online and how they have accessed social spaces from a geographic distance.
From across the disciplines, the researchers speak candidly about past projects and how digital tools and techniques have shaped their research questions and findings. Each interview concludes with practical advice aimed at graduate students interested in deploying remote methods in their own work.
Taken as a whole, the series begins a dialogue on what ethnography may look like after the COVID–19 pandemic.
All interviews are currently available to view here on the Center’s webpage.
