Concordia Ethnography lab member Emma Bider (from the Speculative Life Cluster at Milieux) will be leading a Fiction Writing Workshop on February 18th at 2 pm EST.
The workshop will explore the relationship between fiction and ethnography. The first half will explore the writing process itself, talking about description, voice and evocative language in ethnographic writing and prose. The second half will explore how fiction can be used as a method in anthropological research. Bring your preferred writing device, there will be writing exercises! The goal of the workshop is to stretch our creative muscles, talk about our favourite books (fiction or ethnography) and unpack what makes a compelling story.
There is a limited capacity of 20 people and is open to all Milieux cluster members.

The Concordia Ethnography Lab was established in 2016 to promote and explore innovative ethnographic research. The Lab gathers ethnographic expertise from across Concordia to foster creative thinking about methodology, to enhance the possibility of research collaboration, and to act as a resource for researchers inside and outside the university who wish to use ethnography to ask questions about the world around them.
Located at the Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture, and Technology, the Lab is ideally placed for creating interdisciplinary collaboration. Our members include anthropologists, sociologists, artists, engineers, film-makers, designers, geographers and political scientists. We share loft-like space with other labs in the Speculative Life research cluster where we hold our meetings, workshops, and other events related to ongoing research activities.
