Anthropology | Laboratory in Ethnography
E302 | 12325 | Ai

Students learn approaches and methods of conducting anthropological
research, especially ethnography, through a semester long hands-on
class research project. The research is a service-learning project
through which the students work with a community organization in
Bloomington to both learn research methods and to assist the
organization. The service to the organization is two-fold as the
students have to spend some time there as well as present a class
report to the organization based on the finding of the class research.
Students complete a series of ethnographic lab assignments on
observation, participant
observation, mapping and visual technologies, interviewing, analyzing,
and writing up research findings.
