In the Winter 2019 quarter, UCI anthropology graduate students at different stages
of their research are meeting on a biweekly basis to work through a series of analytic
sketches that support the identification and characterization of relevant social actors
(individuals and organizations), discourses, historical influences, material conditions,
etc.. As a result of asynchronously and synchronously working together, by the end
of the Winter 2019 quarter, each member of the group will have developed a research
"sketchbook" comprised of sketches like those detailed here.
The members have begun synchronizing their work so as to bounce off each other as
they each sketch out their own projects. The group is using the newly installed digital
infrastructure of the Center for Ethnography
to support their work as well as biweekly digital conference calls. If you are interested
in joining, please email aokune[at]uci[dot]edu. The next meeting will be on February
25 (Monday) at 9 AM PST.
