Ethnography in Social Science
The course is offered as an elective course within the master's programme in social studies with disciplinary specialisation in Social Anthropology, Sociology, and Education and is also offered as a freestanding course.
The aim of the course is to analyse the relationship between method and theory in qualitative ethnography. In the course you will read, discuss and analyse ethnographic monographs and articles and carry out empirical, ethnographic, scientific work. The theme and the field for the work is chosen in consultation with teachers. You will also analyse epistemic issues from ethnographic and historical perspectives as well as from contemporary social sciences specialisations and themes.
