Be able to practically implement ethnographical research methods
Ethnography is a qualitative method with origins in cultural and social anthropology, although in recent years it has become increasingly popular amongst scholars in many other disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. The aim of this course is to discuss and practice ethnography and other anthropological methods. During this ten weeks course, we combine practical exercises with reading texts on research methodology. After the course you will know how to do ethnography in a comprehensive way, and appreciate its endless possibilities.
The course is comprised of one or more of the following forms: lectures, seminars, field practice. Language of instruction is English.
The examination will be in one or more of the following forms: home exam, memo writing, group work, active seminar participation and oral presentations. The course will be graded pass with distinction (VG), pass (G) or fail (U).
