This course centers on ethnographic research methods that are fundamental to Cultural Anthropology. Drawing on a collaborative approach with a community partner, the course stresses empowering research participants, addressing the ethical issues of research, interrogating the positionality of the researcher, and building equitable relationships with research participants. The students will be engaged in research practices such as participant-observation, informal interviews, focus groups, and life histories. The course explores Social Justice issues, especially the intersectionality of various factors, race, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, and more, in the everyday lives of individuals. Prerequisite: Anthro 204 or Social Justice 101 or consent of instructor.
