ΠΕΡΙΛΗΨΗ ΤΟΥ ΑΝΤΙΚΕΙΜΕΝΟΥ ΤΟΥ ΣΕΜΙΝΑΡΙΟΥ

Ethnography is typically understood as a paradigm, method and particular genre and commonly used in a range of disciplines (linguistics, anthropology, sociology) to name but few. Although workplace ethnography is still comparatively rare, the number of studies taking this approach is steadily growing. Ethnographic research is associated with the participants’ (emic) understanding of their context. As such it allows researchers to come closer to the complexity of the lived experience and provides the tools for in depth accounts and ‘thick descriptions’ of the meaning of symbols and practices at work. It usually focuses on a single case and involves, ideally, longitudinal designs. What does this practically mean though and how can we avoid common pitfalls that reduce ethnography to quick field visits and notes. What is the role of the researcher and how we handle the politics of interpretation once on site and after? This master class addresses some of these issues and takes a hands on approach applying theory to practice. We will use our immediate surroundings as our fieldsite and explore the strengths and challenges of workplace ethnography.
