ETHICS OF ETHNOGRAPHY

CULANTH 280S

Inquiry into the practical and ethical considerations of ethnography as both a research method and a writing genre. Students learn to identify rhetorical strategies of ethnographic texts and interrogate the moral, political, and ethical issues in representing the 'other.' Frequent workshops guide students through individual research on the intersection of race and some aspect of Durham s social or historical context. Students develop observation and interviewing skills, conduct fieldwork in Durham, and work through several drafts of their own ethnographies, while learning to give and receive feedback.
