Ethnography, Art and Activism Panel at UPenn

Stiteler Hall, 208 South 37th Street, Philadelphia PA, 19104

From the UPenn South Asia Center web site:

In the hands of a skillful researcher, ethnographic findings can be used to draw attention to structural drivers of inequity and injustice, drivers that quantitative findings are often unable to uncover. Once ethnographers have identified these trends, they are faced with the challenge of presenting them in a way that both explains interlocking, intersectional phenomena, and that point to next steps for creating change. To this end, researchers are constantly pushing the boundaries of academic writing, delving into mediums like film, fiction, and creative nonfiction, and blurring the lines between genres. Doing so requires unique approaches to collecting, interpreting, and presenting data. On this panel, anthropologist Maura Finkelstein, novelist Mathangi Subramanian, and film maker, Amit Das describe their approaches to conducting and interpreting ethnographic studies, and their reasons for choosing nontraditional ways to present the results.  The panel will be moderated by Fayyaz Villani.
