The aim of this workshop is to open up for a conversation on ethnographic fieldwork in gender research, its possibilities and challenges. During the workshop we will share experiences from our respective fieldwork – in the intensive care unit during the Covid-19 pandemic and research on nanny and au pair work in Swedish families – and use of different forms of interview techniques. In the second part of the workshop, we invite PhD students to share reflections and questions related to their own fieldwork that will then be discussed and commented on collectively. The PhD students attending the workshop should be prepared to present their research for about 10 minutes and bring a problem/issue that they want to discuss further.
The workshop will take place on November 22nd at 9-13h at Campus Westend, PA P 04
