Ethnographic Writing: A Polyphonic Approach

Adrian Blackledge, Professor in Education and Angela Creese, Professor in Education; University of Stirling, UK

Event Details

Thursday, March 5, 2020
4-5 p.m.
This presentation considers how the written word may (or may not) adequately represent the multi-sensory experience of ethnographic observation. It reports outcomes of a four-year ethnographic research project, which was a collaboration between academic researchers, non-academic partners, and community stakeholders in the UK. The aim of the project was to understand how people communicate across diverse languages and cultures.
