Description

A winner of the Knight Award for Writing Exercises and Handouts, this work originates from Anthropology 1167, Generations: Anthropological Approaches to Persons and Things. The Campus Tour Ethnography assignment sequence presumes no background in empirical research or ethnography; rather, it aims to systematically walk students through the kind of careful, recursive "intellectual work" James Slevin describes in his Letter to Maggie. The sequence includes instructions provided to students, a peer review form, and an example of the first steps which serve as an in-class preparatory exercise. While the campus tour is an effective ethnographic site for this course, given its focus on generations, the assignment sequence could easily be modified for other courses and ethnographic sites. Ultimately, it invites students to wrestle with the difficulties of empirically-based, inductive research and writing. 14 page pdf
