For anthropology graduate students returning from fieldwork. Sociocultural anthropology is based on fieldwork, which is usually conducted independently. The ethnography lab is a context in which graduate students who have completed fieldwork and are engaged in writing their dissertations can meet in a structured fashion to discuss their research and writing. The instructor for the course will work with these graduate students by providing relevant readings and exercises. Students will also read and critique each other's work. The ethnography lab will also invite guests to present their work, with a special emphasis on the practical aspects of moving between ethnographic observation and theory through analysis. The ethnology lab will also provide a forum for these graduate students to present conference papers and practice job talks; the major advisors of these students will also be invited to participate in these events. Students will also receive guidance and direction on the process of turning conference papers and dissertation chapters into published articles.
