Across the Atlantic: Current Issues and Debates in US Ethnography
Keywords:ethnography, qualitative methods, methodology, theory, ethics, United States
AbstractThis overview of selected issues in US ethnography covers the last five to ten years. The paper is divided into three major sections. The first one describes the institutional standing of ethnography in four separate contexts: organizations and conferences, publications, research funding, and careers and centers. Second, the paper reviews recent debates regarding the roles of politics and theory in US ethnographic research. A third focus is placed on methodological issues, such as the increasing diversity of ethnographic research methods and designs, as well as a new set of research requirements administered by ethical review boards at all US universities.
