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.
