2024 Ethnographic Field School

This spring semester students will participate in equity focused research through the Rapid Ethnographic Assessment (REA) method working with local organization(s) and their communities. Data will be collected to help in problem solving emerging needs and associated policy decisions. REA act to decolonize anthropology, shifting power dynamics into the hands of the community/stakeholders. Practical skills employed in data collection may include digital study, narrative mapping, intercept survey, participant observation, active listening, and in-depth interview. Students will transcribe interviews, participate in field work debriefings, analysis (coding), and report writing. REA is a team-based form of research where students will be involved in all aspects from data collection to report writing. As this is a field course, 150 hours are required to fulfill the course requirements. (Appropriate IRB approval will be obtained prior to the start of research activities.)

Students will meet during the spring semester; M-Th, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
