Ethnography in Odd Places

Fifth Avenue

Ethnographic researchers often find themselves in truly odd places. From the back seat of a passenger vehicle to the front seat of 40 ton construction vehicle and between the kitchens and living rooms of our user’s homes, there is a great deal to be learned about the world our user’s live and work in.

Conducting good research requires careful planning and an ability to adapt quickly to changing situations - particularly when the researchers are unsure of what they will be facing. The presenters will share personal experiences of conducting research in odd places and tips for dealing with the challenges that can crop up.
