A yearlong series organized by students in the Religion, Sociology, and Anthropology departments to spark interdisciplinary conversation about ethnography and to demonstrate the diversity of the field by considering how ethnographic research can be paired with archival and historical work, performance studies, gender studies, religious studies, and media studies, among others. The series will include both faculty presentations, master classes, and graduate student works in progress.
