    Institutional Ethnography Weekend Workshop
    with Dorothy Smith and Susan Turner
    The Weekend Workshop translates the formulation of Institutional Ethnography (IE) as a method of inquiry and its approach to language and texts into a research practice for you to use and to know how to explain and justify it to others. The key to doing Institutional Ethnography is grasping its distinct social ontology, central concepts and forms of inquiry and description that make IE fundamentally a distinct sociology. Understanding language and texts as integral to forms of social organization and how IE addresses these in ethnographic practice, is central. The workshop will be of interest to those wanting to clarify their understanding of IE, and to learn and practice various analytic strategies for incorporating texts.
    Friday and Saturday will include presentations and the beginning of a practice exercise with a topic of concern to you. Saturday and Sunday will be practice, presentation of what is learned and discussion.
    Preparation
    We will ask you to do some readings prior to arriving.
    Friday, June 10th: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Saturday, June 11th: 9:30 am - 5:30 pm
    Sunday, June 12th: 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
