[METHODOLOGY WORKSHOP] Virtual Ethnography or Doing Ethnography Virtually?

A hybrid collaborative workshop presented by the Lab for Latin American and the Caribbean Studies, the Research Team on Inclusion and Governance in Latin America – ÉRIGAL, and our very own Concordia Ethnography Lab.

In this interdisciplinary workshop, we will discuss the evolving craft of virtual ethnography, and how this expanding field can shed light to virtual ethnography methodologies and approaches during COVID-19 travel and gathering restrictions.

While the workshop was originally thought up and tailored for students currently confronting virtuality when their preliminary research was constructed otherwise, we plan on discussing research methodologies anchored in virtuality prior to the onset of the pandemic, as well as describing the process of transitioning from in-person to online research and practice. It is our hope that students, artists, and researchers alike will take inspiration, tips and hope from this workshop, and be able to expand their ethnography practices in the current state of affairs.

Featured speakers at this methodology workshop are Milieux’s director
Dr. Bart Simon (Associate Professor Social and Cultural Analysis), Dr. Stefanie Duguay (Assistant Professor, Department of Communication Studies, DIGS Lab and Milieux), and student presenters Kathryn Jezer Morton (Ph.D. student in Social and Cultural Analysis), and our very own social media assistant Ariana Seferiades (Recent graduate, MA Anthropology). The session will be moderated by Dr. Kregg Hetherington (Associated Professor, Sociology and Anthropology).

This event will take place in person at the Ethnography Lab as well as online (via Zoom). TO RSVP, please email info@erigal.org.
