Methodological issues in linguistic ethnography


4th March, 2006

Place The Open University, Milton Keynes
Focus This seminar is part of UKLEF’s ongoing focus on methodological issues. The seminar addresses the following questions: How can textual and contextual analysis be combined? How can we develop a language of description to capture the dynamic aspects of communication? How can narrative be used, both as method and representation, within ethnographic research? Ethnographer or linguist? Are these and/or other identities/roles compatible in the research process?
