Fieldwork techniques are essential to qualitative research. Fieldwork is one of the key research methods in sociology and anthropology, as well as journalism and espionage! This course will introduce the principles and practice of fieldwork through hands-on learning as students design and carry out a piece of fieldwork research together with a group of other students. Learning outcomes for the course include the ability to work with a group, the ability to take the initiative in creating a research project, and the increased empathy and reflexivity involved in good quality fieldwork.
