Ethnography Reading Group


This group is for anyone interested in, using or even sceptical of ethnographic research methods in any area of research, criminological or otherwise. We meet about every 6-8 weeks (in Glasgow) to discuss suggested readings of articles, chapters and books. We have begun to consider presenting our own work as a way of learning about a variety of ethnographic methods in different contexts, and to explore developing a joint writing project. This webpage aims to provide a resource for those interested in ethnography in social science research. Currently it contains a list of all the readings we have done and which have been suggested for future meetings. Please email for suggestions on additions to this website or questions about coming along to a meeting.
