About

The Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop Making Sensory Ethnography offers a collaborative, interdisciplinary space to showcase unfinished projects and discuss the process of experimenting with ethnographic methods, forms, and content. Bi-monthly meetings throughout the academic year will vary in organization, including student presentations of in-process work for feedback by graduate students and faculty, visiting scholars’ presentations and discussion sessions, and faculty-led workshops on the theoretical and practical affordances of sensory media. While meetings lend focus to varied productions, discussion of these works seeks to emphasize the knowledge engendered through analyzing the process of their creation, and to exploring diverse media in their own right. We aim for the Making Sensory Ethnography Workshop to create a low-stakes environment to cultivate relationships among researchers and makers through scholarly and creative exchanges that will enable participants to further the development of ethnographically-informed projects.
