Reviewing ethnographic texts

The objective of REVIEWING ETHNOGRAPHIC TEXTS (course SVF 3101) is to provide a tool for exploring and reviewing ethnographic texts systematically, using either monograph or thesis.

In monographs the richness of the empirical material is presented, while articles often have a more clear-cut theoretical or methodological focus.
