What are ethnographic methods?

Ethnographic methods are a research approach where you look at people in their cultural setting, with the goal of producing a narrative account of that particular culture, against a theoretical backdrop. As part of this you will look at:

·Deeds done as well as words used

·How they interact with one another, and with their social and cultural environment

·Language, and symbols, rituals and shared meanings that populate their world
