The folks over at Ethnography Matters picked up my post Who Needs an Ethnographer? considering the ways that a volunteer ethnographic project could be designed and how it could be community-led. I’m chuffed to bits to be featured on Ethnography Matters which I think is a fantastic publication with a great archive of useful insights.
I also want to take this opportunity to remind you all that I’m still a volunteer in search of a project! As my days are full of quantitative work (being a Data Wizard and all), I’m on the lookout for a volunteer project that would let me flex my anthropology muscles a bit more. I’m especially interested in volunteering with a theatre, dance, or arts group that is looking to run a qualitative project and isn’t sure how to get started. Sometimes these kinds of projects are called verbatim theatre, community engaged theatre or applied theatre. (Links kindly provided by my research colleague and co-editor of Belly Dance Around the World Barbara Sellers-Young!) If you know of any groups that might be interested in a project like this, please do put them in touch.
