This symposium aims to bring together established and emerging social and management science scholars with an interest in ethnographic research to explore current trends in qualitative research in and around these and other developments within the field from a broad range of perspectives. The symposium will appeal not only to organization and management academics but also those working within sociology, anthropology, human geography, architecture, law, criminology, politics, cultural studies, environmental studies, gender studies and social and public policy. The symposium organizers welcome papers from any of these disciplines. Papers that examine the role and value of ethnography in social and management teaching and research, and those that address the theoretical, philosophical, empirical and practical questions in ethnography will be particularly welcome. In addition the organizers would also like to welcome papers that examine the political and ethical challenges involved in conducting critical ethnographic research.
