workshop teaching

This workshop explored some of the existing intersections between disciplines and opportunities for cross-pollinations. The session incorporated several hands-on 'analog' activities designed to get students thinking about how to conceptualize their data, how to visualize it, and how this work might shape or reshape their ethnographic outlook. We linked these non-digital activities to more digitally-oriented tools that graduate students can use to conduct research, to exhibit their data, and to craft compelling ethnographic narratives.
