Algemeen
This is the second part of a semester-long laboratory course. Weekly meetings combine instruction on ethnographic research methodology and theoretical issues related to ethnographic research on subjects related to the arts. Students engage in semester-long fieldwork in or around the city of Utrecht (or farther afield) at sites of their own choosing, while applying methods introduced in the course and reflecting on the various issues arising out of their engagement with research subjects. The research conducted in both blocks culminates in a long research-based paper due at the end of block 2.

Voorbereiding bijeenkomsten
Reading the assigned literature and preparing for practical exercises.

Bijdrage aan groepswerk
Group work consists mainly of practical exercises and instruction geared toward teaching students how to operationalize their ethnographic research. Each student will be assigned to a team and each team maintains a blog containing the ethnographic fieldnotes of its members. In this block, students with similar research projects will also be distributed into research clusters in order to facilitate the sharing of ideas, approaches, bibliographies, etc.
