‘Ethnography: Future intimations’

Two-day workshop for PhD students and Early Career Researchers

Tuesday 18 June – Wednesday 19 June 2024

Newcastle University Business School

Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK

Ethnography offers one of the most powerful methods of inquiry in management and organization studies and is becoming increasingly popular amongst researchers working within the various specialisms of business and management practice, whether that be human resource management, strategy, marketing, employee relations, accounting and finance, or technology and innovation. And yet the provision of good ethnographic training for PhD students and early career researchers is only in its infancy in UK Business Schools, struggling to hold its own in efficiency-driven environments, especially relative to mass production methods popular at the moment.

This two-day workshop is designed to explore these issues with you and support you to develop your ethnographic research project, whether a PhD thesis or early career research project. We will work with you on these and allied ideas to think ethnographically and to develop your ethnographic practice. Please read the attached flyer for further details and make sure that you can commit to fully participating in both days before submitting your registration as places are limited.
