Debating Ethnography has its roots in a staff-student group in LCL established in 2014.
It brings together staff and PG students who work at the interface of the Humanities and Social Sciences (in areas such as Modern Languages, English, History, Archaeology, Social Sciences, Medicine and Web Sciences) and who use ethnographic methods to conduct empirical research and explore the role of culture in their fields of study.
We organise regular open seminars, workshops and training sessions, exploring the role and potential of ethnography in the context of our research and the societal challenges we face.
Members of the research group employ ethnographic research in a wide range of research areas, including language use, multilingualism, education, globalisation, capitalism, migration and mobility.
The research group has a wider community through its Facebook page. We are open to collaboration and the sharing of interdisciplinary knowledge. Our blog engages with multi-modal and transdisciplinary forms of ethnography through a wide range of topics and publishes our activities.
