Ethnography

Learn how to record rich, detailed field notes and design and conduct rich interviews; how to code and analyze field notes and interview transcripts; and how to work from raw empirical findings to analytical interpretations to theoretical contributions. This is an advanced course on the craft of ethnography. We will explore the process of getting into the field, gathering data, and organizing and analyzing data to identify and theorize patterns in organizational life.

Course Description

This is an advanced course on the craft of ethnography. We will explore the process of getting into the field, gathering data, and organizing and analyzing data to identify and theorize patterns in organizational life. In the last session we will discuss publishing so that you get a sense of the end of the line. However, the focus will be on the hard work of getting to that point. This is a hands-on course which will require that you practice the main skills required of ethnographers. We will collect new data and work with existing data.
