Ethnographic Field and Data Analysis Methods: One-on-one Mentoring

  • Organizers: Elizabeth Bingham Thomas and Douglas Hume
  • Time and Location: T.B.A.

Abstract: Many anthropology students and professionals are expected to conduct ethnographic research and implement analytical methods, yet some are not formally taught these skills, nor have an expert available with whom to consult. To help bridge this gap, the Society for Anthropological Sciences invites all students and professionals to engage directly with experts about their research and analysis questions. Mentors will be available to discuss research design, qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis, dissemination, and career paths. Supporting session materials are posted on the SAS website (
