ANT3031 Methods of Cultural Field Study


Ethnography is an empirical, scientific approach for describing the cultural aspects of human life. This course will investigates the range of research methods used by cultural anthropologists to conduct ethnographic field work, with an emphasis on observation, interviewing, surveying, and the use of archived materials. Although examples from contemporary anthropologists will be used to highlight the methods under study, students will also learn through explicit skills instruction and hands-on practice of research methods. Each student will conduct a community-based, field methods project that allows them to hone their research skills, synthesize their learning and present their findings. Students must have completed three courses at the 2000 level, one of which must be in a Social Science discipline, with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. Credits: 3.000
