Description

Undergraduate ethnographic research can be a very valuable experience for students in Anthropology and other Social Sciences. In this presentation, I will share some of my findings from the ethnographic research carried out at Thorn Creek. This will include visual data gathered in the form of photography, as well as an analysis of key cultural themes. Additionally, I will discuss the ways in which engaging the ethnographic research process has enhanced my intellectual experience and understanding of the discipline, as well as its carryover for future academic and career ambitions. Finally, I will pose a question framed of gleanings and insight from my fieldwork experience that I hope will illuminate the potential of ethnographic research as a critical tool for undergraduate education in Anthropology and the Social Sciences.
