Folklore | Readings in Ethnography
F525 | 2429 | Glassie

Ethnography combines the skills of the fieldworker with the skills of
the writer.  This course will stress writing.  By reading
ethnographies, by conducting small experiments in the field, and by
producing sample texts, we will learn how to develop a style while
balancing the multiple demands of the ethnographer’s art.  The books
we read and discuss will come from different eras, but the goal will
be less historical than critical, less critical than pragmatic as old
works become inspiration for new practice.
