Ethnography Workshop: experiences and debates
Positioning itself among the demands for a compassionate ethnography , the Ethnography Workshop welcomes the sharing of experiences concerning the practice of ethnography, profiting from the reflexive dynamics created by the regular meeting of a group of peers. This environment of complicity and debate makes room for fieldwork to be a safer, healthier and more ethical experience, both for researchers and for the people with whom they propose to carry out their studies, in situations of greater or lesser vulnerability of all parties involved. This is a first step towards the construction of a repertoire of ways of being in the field, which allows not only to help anticipate challenges and imagine strategies to overcome them, but also to enhance institutional resources that are better streamlined collectively. In addition to the experiences shared by the participants, the sessions will focus on texts, films and guests.
