Ethnography Working Group

Contributed by: James Nyce
Published: Tuesday, 16 April 2019 6:00 AM
A number of BSU faculty have an interest in ethnography. Given that we
are in different colleges, departments and disciplines, establishing a
university-wide ethnography working group has been a reasonable idea.
The working group has become a venue to share ideas, exchange literature
and present ongoing ethnographic research. The working group has also
become a forum to discuss the role ethnography and qualitative research
can play in immersive instruction.

The working group has met on and off for the last twelve years. The next meeting

Wednesday, May 1st, 2019
301 Room: Schwartz Learning Pod Room Bracken Library
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
