The HEA-funded project Ethnographic Encounters: Using the Residence Abroad to Explore other Societies and Cultures, led by Professor Marion Demossier and Dr Lisa Bernasek from Modern Languages at the University of Southampton, has recently launched a website, which includes resources aimed at supporting students with designing and carrying out ethnographic projects during the Year Abroad, and supporting staff with teaching ethnographic methods for language students.

The Ethnographic Encounters Project will be hosting a workshop on Wednesday 4 November 2015 from 10.00-16:30 at the University’s Avenue Campus. The workshop will present the Ethnographic Encounters project, and will highlight the ways in which ethnography is used within Modern Languages programmes across the UK. Colleagues from Southampton and other institutions, as well as students interested in ethnographic projects on the Year Abroad, are welcome to attend.

Visit the Ethnographic Encounters website for further details about the project, and the event page on Eventbrite for further details on the workshop, including information on how to book your place.
