Description :

Essential ethnographic methods provides the reader with an introduction to participant and non-participant observation, interviewing and ethnographically-informed survey research, including structured interviews and questionnaires. These are the basic building blocks of ethnographic data collecting, providing researchs with answers to the key ethnographic questions :

– What’s happening in this setting ?
– Who is engaging in what kind of activities with whom ?
– What do they think they’re doing ?

The authors describe when and how to use these basic techniques and offer numerous examples of how these methods work in practice.
