Call for Panelists
Roundtable Discussion on Interdisciplinary Ethnography
American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting
Nov 30-Dec 4 2005
Ethnography is becoming an increasingly popular research method for scholars engaged in interdisciplinary workó-particularly in the fields of American Studies and cultural studies. While this development signals exciting new possibilities for appreciation of and engagement with anthropological theories and methods across the academy, it also demands consideration of how (and how well) ethnographic methods are being used in interdisciplinary contexts.
This roundtable discussion will feature scholars engaged in conducting, teaching, or advising interdisciplinary ethnographic research. Panelists will consider how interdisciplinary scholars are using anthropological theories and methods, and how anthropologists can both encourage and guide the use of ethnography in interdisciplinary research. We envision an open and lively dialogue with audience members, whose experiences and insights will be welcomed.
Scholars interested in participating on the panel should contact Carrie Lane Chet by March 15, 2005 at the following e-mail address.
