PACE: Field School in Anthropology - ANTH225

This unit provides students with the opportunity to practice ethnography in a real setting by doing applied or community-based anthropological research through preparation, participation in, and reflection on a PACE placement. In 2018, the students will have the opportunity to either complete a placement in an on- or off-campus museum (Session 1), or in an off-campus corporate/ business setting (Session 2). The prerequisites are 24cp at 100 level or above, and permission by special approval via an application process in S1. In S2, the prerequisites are the successful completion of ANTH324 or SOC224 (or another equivalent methods unit), and permission by special approval via an application process. In both sessions, the unit includes practical skill building in hands-on environments, and reflection on anthropological practice, including the ethics of doing ethnographic research, research techniques and dissemination strategies. During the unit, students will develop skills in inter-cultural communication, research design, and mixed methods research. When possible, the unit will involve the production of publicly available outputs so that students can include the work in their pre-professional portfolios.
