Personal Ethnograpy Project


This exercise teaches you some of the basic principles used while conducting fieldwork in cultural anthropology. Ethnography is the work of describing a culture. Typical ethnographic research employs three kinds of data collection: interviews, observation, and documents. This produces three kinds of data: quotations, descriptions, and excerpts of documents. The result is one product: narrative description. This narrative often includes charts, diagrams and additional artifacts that help to tell the story. The goal of ethnographic inquiry is to understand another way of life and is a useful tool for understanding how other people see their experience. Rather than studying people – ethnography means learning from people. While this may not be a classic ethnographic inquiry, you will work with many of the same goals and techniques to acquire information about your personal history in order to share it with others…it will be an ethnographic inquiry of your family. This is less like writing a paper and more like making a visual scrapbook. I want to learn about you and your cultural history, so show me with visuals AND words.
