Misunderstanding ethnography: Evidence in law, journalism and political ethnography

Misunderstanding ethnography: Evidence in law, journalism and political ethnography

In Interrogating Ethnography: Why Evidence Matters (2018), law professor and lawyer Steven Lubet mounts a concerted attack on ethnography for relying upon evidence that would not meet the standards that obtain in legal proceedings. What is ethnography, and why should this concern political scientists? In this seminar, the second in the 'Rethinking Interpretive Methods" series, hosted by the Interpretation, Method and Critique Network at the ANU, speakers address this question by drawing on the contents of a recent dialogue in Politics, Groups, and Identities (vol. 9, no. 4, 2021), authored by Dvora Yanow (Wageningen), Sharon Batt (Dalhousie), David Forrest (Oberlin), Anastasia Shesterinina (Sheffield) & Nick Cheesman (ANU).
