# Week 1

## Lecture

### Readings

- Le Guin (1973)
- Mutaru (2018)

Contemporary ethnographic research continues the tradition of ethnographic inquiry in anthropology and sociology, but has some distinguishing characteristics. We will discuss the past and present of ethnographic research and how at every stage it involves decisions where ethical concerns are at stake, forcing us to ask what "the good" is in society and how we are meant to act.

## Tutorial

### Homework

- Find the ethics code of an anthropological association in your home country or region and read it with Mutaru (2018) in the back of your mind.
- Read Kell (2021) and find at least one other story about the same issue.

During tutorials, you will study and discuss ethics guidelines of various professional associations. You will also discuss controversies around anthropology's historical entanglement with imperialist or settler-colonial projects and their perduring implications for research ethics.

# Week 3

## Lecture

### Readings

- Markham (2012)

We have discussed challenges we face as we want to conduct ethnographic research in an ethical manner in today's world. But what can we do as researchers to put ethical principles into practice? How can we avoid causing harm and protect those in the field, ourselves included? We will draw on a range of practices and literatures to think through ways of "hacking" ethnography.

**No tutorials this week.**

# Week 6

## Lecture

### Readings

- Fassin (2013) 
- Dilger et al. (2018)

Researchers have a responsibility to address issues of public concern, and critical scholars in particular have the ambition of making public interventions. This requires finding formats for scholarly communication that can reach the public, but also resisting tendencies that enclose scholarly knowledge behind paywalls or within proprietary systems. In that sense, ethnographers are champions of opening up our work. The demand to be "open" can also challenge the conduct of critical research, particularly for ethnographers who are unable to share their data or be totally transparent about their research process. We will discuss a variety of ethical issues that are at stake in this tension.

## Tutorial

During tutorials, you will discuss [assignment 3](../assignments/3.md).
