Birmingham Ethnography Group is an informal monthly coffee morning for researchers, students or anyone interested in ethnography. My own PhD work explores hyperlocal community media audiences in south Birmingham, but I’ve recently become aware of others ethnographers at BCU. While the nature of ethnography means we mix with the communities we study, it is rarely the case that we rub shoulders with other researchers, so this coffee morning offers us opportunity to informally talk through our work, share concerns, seek advice and discuss methods. The meeting is open to both staff and interested students across the University.
Meetings will be at Birmingham City University locations – the new Curzon House site, Parkside and the Faculty of Health, Westbourne Road. Meetings will be informal but may look for structure later on with specific talks and/or film screenings.
Our first meeting is Wednesday 30th September 2015, at 11am, in the third floor coffee area of Parkside building, BCU B4 7BD. Please get in touch if you’d like to come along; email [email protected]
