Runaway Methods: Ethnography and Its Transformations

Project: Research

Layman's description

The aim of this project is to study what happens when a methodological concept such as ethnography travels between the academy and fields such as the world of business and the contemporary artworld.

With the study we aim to develop new ethnographic practices and a deeper theoretical understanding of what will happen when scientific concepts and methods migrate from one context to another.

The objective of this project is to study what happens when a methodological concept and research strategy travels between different disciplines and fields. As part of this we shall analyze how the competencies of ethnography have become central skills in the cultural sciences as well as in fields beyond the academy, such as the worlds of business and art.
