Course Description This is a course for students who have completed the Designs of Social Research Class. It is open to 6-10 students with instructor’s permission only. The idea is to read collaboratively a set of books that feature different ways of working with qualitative, mainly ethnographic, data in order to reveal something new about the world. The goal is to understand what makes a study work. The course is planned for 14 reading sessions over the course of 1 year, meeting every other week. The readings I have in mind are listed below. The class decides along the way, especially for the 2nd semester, weeks 7-12 what we read. The participants write 2-page memos for each class in anticipation of the discussion, and read and comment on the other memos prior to class.
