PhD Workshop on Urban Ethnography

Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE), Research theme Transnational Families

Organisers: Joan van Geel and  Ester Serra Mingot

During the two-day workshop, 12 PhD researchers from across The Netherlands will discuss ethical and methodological challenges encountered during their ethnographic fieldwork in urban settings, and the different strategies used to overcome them. This workshop offers young scholars a knowledge-sharing platform under the guidance of three experts with extensive ethnographic experience in various Global North and Southern urban contexts.

As part of the workshop, on May 30th from 16:30 – 18:30, the film “Our City” will be screened followed by a discussion with the director, Maria Tarantino, on issues regarding her methods in composing this film about Brussels.

Those interested in attending the screening of the film and the Q&A session are kindly requested to send an e-mail to e.serramingot@maastrichtuniversity.nl. Limited places will be allocated in the order of e-mails received.
