Autoethnography Workshop

St Francis College at Milton is hosting a Qualitative Research Method Workshop on Individual and Collaborative Autoethnography, presented by Heewon Chang, Ph. D., Professor of Organizational Leadership and Education at Eastern University, USA and Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Multicultural Education. Professor Chang is the author of: Autoethnography as Method(2008), Spirituality in Higher Education: Autoethnographies (2012), and Collaborative Autoethnography (2013).

The workshop will extend over five (5) days, and numbers are limited to 15 participants. Register online now to secure one of these 15 places.

Description

This five-day workshop focuses on individual and collaborative autoethnography as a qualitative research method.  Dr. Heewon Chang, author of multiple books and articles on autoethnography, will present the theoretical and practical knowledge of this research method in interactive sessions.  Ten sessions (two each morning) will cover the following topics: (1) methodological tenets of individual and collaborative authoethnography; (2) research topic selection; (3) data collection; (4) data analysis and interpretation; and (5) autoethnographic writing.  Participants may use the optional afternoon sessions to practice research steps independently or design a new autoethnographic project.  By the end of the workshop, participants might expect to have gained a working knowledge of this research method and be able to initiate their own autoethnographic project.

Audience

The workshop is designed to provide foundational knowledge about autoethnography to those who, for the first time, want to use autobiographical data for social science research. Those who are somewhat familiar with the research method may also benefit from the workshop by participating in hands-on exercises in the company of other novice and seasoned autoethnographers. We welcome scholars and students of autoethnography and other qualitative research methods from a variety of disciplines including, but not limited to, education, leadership, health care, social work, sociology, anthropology, ministry, communication, business, etc.
