Ethnographic research workshop: Ethnographic observation and participant observation in Fulbright research

May 19, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

How do we acknowledge our biases and reflect on how our cultural perspectives are formed? How do we physically position ourselves in a space that is unfamiliar to us? How do we behave when etiquette is unknown or language is an obstacle? What does participation look like, and when is participation appropriate or inappropriate?
