Title: Challenges for ethnography
Chair: Ian Stronach, Manchester Metropolitan University
In this session three eminent ethnographers will give their different perspectives on why ethnography is important and what the future offers in terms of both opportunities and challenges (for example, do new methods of recording or analysis open up new opportunities; are there increased challenge to conducting or reporting research?).
