GLOCOL Seminar: Ethnography, a technique for describing reality

2014-11-15 (Sat) 2:40 p.m. - 4:10 p.m.

Ethnography is a technique for describing the society and culture of a group. In the circle of cultural anthropology, ethnography has been criticized since the publication of Writing Culture by James Clifford and George E. Marcus in 1986 and a variety of approaches have been taken.
This seminar will take a look at the development of ethnography genealogically while confirming its current position. IWATANI Hirofumi, Lecturer, Faculty of Intercultural Communication, Kobe University, will introduce his visual ethnographical efforts. Although this seminar is part of the GLOCOL course, Writing an Ethnographical Report, it is open to the public.
Lecturer: IWATANI Hirofumi, Part-time Lecturer, Faculty of Intercultural Communication, Kobe University; Visiting Researcher, National Museum of Ethnology
