ANTH 398 - Research Methods for Understanding Culture and Health

This seminar focuses on the fundamentals of ethnographic research design and methodology as they relate to anthropological and public health research. Students will learn to define a topic, formulate research questions, conduct a literature review, draft a proposal, conduct participant observation, carry out ethnographic interviews, design surveys, and create fieldnotes. We will discuss and practice these methods in real-world contexts, formulating research questions and practicing the methods best suited to answer those questions through a semester-long collaborative class project. The course culminates in the design of an individual pilot project and proposal.
