Qualitative Methods in Practice: Conducting Ethnographic Research

Target Audience: PGRs and ECRs who are interested in learning more about the application of qualitative research methods.

Process: Webinar - Presentation and discussion

Speaker: Dr Elisabetta Zontini


This session will focus on ethnography as a research method. We will explore what it entails, what it is good for and how to conduct it. Drawing on my past projects, I will consider issues to do with conducting urban ethnographies; getting access and building rapport in the field; the strengths and limitations of multi-sited and comparative ethnographies and the role of the researcher (including debates around insider/outsider status)
