Assignments should focus on demonstrating your understanding of readings by putting course materials in conversation with your growing knowledge Ethnography. They should NOT simply summarize the readings.
Demonstrate your analytic interpretation of, and engagement with, these topics. In order to achieve full credit, strong reflections should work toward critiquing, synthesizing, and applying knowledge gained each week.
You may consider writing about:
- – How the theoretical claims and examples fit into your ethnographic project?
- – What was the authorâ€™s/authorsâ€™ argument and what is your stance?
- – How do these readings inform current events? (News, Media, Culture, Etc.)You must cite at least ONE of the following in your reflection:

- Barbour 2014. Chapter 2. â€œQualitative Traditions: Epistemology and Ontologyâ€ in Introducing Qualitative Research
