Anthropological Fieldwork

The course primarily consists of a period of ethnographic fieldwork. The student prepares a research project which is then carried out in the form of a shorter fieldwork period. The topic of the project is formulated in consultation with a supervisor at the department.

The fieldwork builds on anthropological research methods and an anthropological theoretical framework. It acts as the foundation on which the Master’s thesis is based.

Fieldwork can be carried out in Sweden or another part of the world. However, students are responsible for ensuring that the necessary finances exist. The course is complte on the presentation of a written report to the supervisor.
