Workshop with
Ruth Behar
April 6, 2016
9:30 - 11:30AM

University of Colorado, Boulder
Center for British and Irish Studies,
Norlin Library


Workshop Description:
Ruth Behar will work with a small group of participants around the theme and practice of ethnographic writing. We've come a long way since Clifford Geertz proposed that all that was required to produce good ethnographic writing was “thick description.” In this workshop we will consider a wide range of textual strategies that ethnographers have used and address the complexity of writing ethnography that matters in the world today. Writing samples will be provided for discussion and participants can bring extracts from their writing to analyze with the group.
