Ethnography Project Description (Immigrant Life History): 20 points The ethnography project will draw on anthropological theories covered in discussions and readings as well as your own ethnographic research interests in the NYC community. This project will allow you to develop your own ethnographic and analytic skills. I encourage you to explore your own cultural interests with this project and to incorporate them into your research question. You are not allowed to research your own cultural/ethnic group. Guidelines Ethnographies are different from standard research papers. They tend to be more reflexive they include the ethnographers experiences, biases, and interests and they often have a narrative structure. They incorporate anecdotes, and interpret them with support from anthropological theory (relevant Literature) and demographic & statistical data. The arguments presented in ethnographies are supported by evidence from the authors fieldwork experience and/or from scholarly literature. Unsubstantiated opinions should not be included as fact. Acquaint yourself with your target population and record all your notes throughout the research process. While you should feel free to creatively explore the ethnographic genre, you are required to include the following in your ethnography project: Part I – Context (5 points) : Archival background data for target population (ethnic immigrant group) you will be researching in NYC Do not include demographic/historical data for the country/nation of origin.
