Ethnography is one of the oldest methods in social research and provides unparalleled access to social life. The Centre for Critical Social Research is organising a one day conference that will bring together ethnographers to discuss developments, challenges and the future of the ethnographic method. We are delighted to have confirmed Professor Anderson and Professor O’Reilly who have years of experience working in the field; with the aim of the day to explore approaches, difficulties and novel ways to conduct fieldwork. We invite papers from established and early career academics exploring a range of themes in ethnography. The method has been used across a range of disciplines and we welcome papers from any subject area including but not limited to sociology, anthropology, education, health studies, migration, politics and activist research.

Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words to Kehinde.andrews@bcu.ac.uk by Friday 25th March.

The cost to attend the conference will be £50 for full time employed; £30 for part time employed and postgraduate students.
