We hope you’ll join us for the first in this year’s series of Ethnography Lab Workshops! On Monday, February 26, Maya Hey will be back to facilitate “Proprioception: Bodies in Space.”

Please find details below, poster attached, and be in touch if you have any questions. Workshops are free, but please be sure to register online in advance. Finally, stay tuned for our forthcoming workshops on “Mapping Ethnography” and Visualizing Ethnography”! We hope to see you soon.

Proprioception: the physiological phenomenon of the sense of self in space. Proprioception is knowing and sensing one’s orientation. It is knowing where the self ends and the rest begins. It is a physical and material mode of attention often overlooked in the text-based world of academia.

This workshop attunes participants to this sense of self and other – and its implications for conducting interpersonal research – through movement exercises followed by discussion and writing activity. The workshop space is wheelchair-accessible, and activities are tailored to participants’ mobilities. Please direct accessibility questions and requests to Alix Johnson: albajohn@ucsc.edu.

Participants should bring a notebook, water bottle, and comfortable clothing. The Ethnography Lab is wheelchair accessible and activities will be tailored to participants’ mobilities. For other accessibility questions or accommodations, please contact Alix Johnson (albajohn@ucsc.edu).

*This workshop is back by popular demand – participants in the 2017 workshop, as well as new participants, are welcome to attend!
