Interdisciplinary Ethnographies

Year of Funding: 

Interdisciplinarity is a difficult goal to achieve as it requires intellectual collaboration among scholars. The significance of our workshop series is to spark a collaborative discussion with a specific focus on understanding theoretical issues and practical applications for our respective projects. Ethnography appears to be a widely used 'interdisciplinary' method among scholars from various disciplines but the intellectual aspect needs exploration. Our ambition is to come together to explore the ways in which interdisciplinary approaches to ethnography can enhance our intellectual works and attract more attention to collaborative work on this topic among UW students.

We will hold three workshops throughout AY 2019-2020. The first will be held on Monday, December 2, 3:30-5 pm in CMU 218D.
