Ethnography in Social Science Practice explores ethnography's
increasing use across the social sciences, beyond its traditional
bases in social anthropology and sociology. It explores the
disciplinary roots of ethnographic research within social
anthropology, and contextualizes it within both field and
disciplinary settings. The book is of two parts: Part one places
ethnography as a methodology in its historical, ethical and
disciplinary context, and also discusses the increasing popularity
of ethnography across the social sciences. Part two explores the
stages of ethnographic research via a selection of
multidisciplinary case studies. A number of key questions are
explored: What exactly is ethnographic research and what makes it
different from other qualitative approaches? Why did ethnography
emerge within one social science discipline and not others? Why did
its adoption across the social sciences prove problematic? What are
the methodological advantages and disadvantages of doing
ethnographic research? Why are ethnographers so concerned by issues
of ethics, politics, representation and power? What does
ethnography look like within different social science disciplines?
The book is aimed at social science students at both undergraduate
and postgraduate level and each chapter has pedagogic features,
including reflective activities and suggested further readings for
