Different Kind of Ethnography : Imaginative Practices and Creative Methodologies (Paperback)
about this item
This innovative book introduces the latest in scholarship and experimental methods in what has come to be known as "sensory ethnography." Produced by members of the Centre for Imaginative Ethnography, it supports the idea of an imaginative and creative approach to anthropological inquiry—one that is collaborative, open-ended, embodied, affective, and experimental.
Conceptualizing ethnography as a critical process of inquiry that is at once empirical and theoretical, the authors organize their thoughts around five key methodologies: sensing, walking, writing, performing, and recording. They also integrate more traditional methods like participant observation, interviewing, and documentary research. Each chapter includes practical exercises, a list of further resources, and links to online materials that can help encourage a more imaginative and creative methodology.
