Three-day PhD-course in cooperation with the Department of Social Anthropology, UiO
Over the last decades, ethnographic methods have become common in a number of disciplines outside of anthropology. In Science technology studies (STS), museology, geography, sociology and in religious and area studies. What does it take to be able to call ones methodology ‘participant observation’? What are the advantages and the disadvantages of such approaches? The course outline new ethnographic challenges, when the world of fieldwork no longer take place in small places, where people primarily engaged orally. We show the wide variety of fieldwork sites that can benefit from ethnographic approaches.
