Ethnography is no longer confined to small-scale and rural societies; conducting ethnographic research in the twenty-first century clearly demands a different approach compared to the traditional ethnographic site. Still, the nature of ethnographic research, where we use our own selves as our main tool of understanding, remains unchanged in its fundamentals. For that reason, it is essential that ethnographers continuously develop, reassess, and reflect on their methods. These sessions address these issues in contemporary ethnography and encourages the submission of papers relating to this theme.
Ethnography I: Secluded settings. Session organizer: Erika Andersson Cederholm, Department of Service Management, Lund University, Sweden.
Ethnography II: Analysis and epistemology. Session organizer: Katarina Sjöberg, Department of Sociology, Lund University, Sweden.
Ethnography III: Virtual spaces. Session organizer: Dominika Byczkowska, The Sociology of Organization and Management Department, Lodz University, Poland.
The sessions are scheduled as number 5, 15 and 16.
