The Centre for Ethnographic Research (CER) welcomes the editors of four academic journals that support ethnography. They will briefly outline their vision about publishing ethnography in the 21st century, focusing on the challenges and advantages set by the medium of the 'the journal article'. The format of the event will encourage the development of an informal discussion in response to questions raised by potential authors in the audience. A panel of Kent-ethnographers will start a session of questions, interrogating the relationship between the point of view of authors and journal editors.

The four editors participating are: Dr Elizabeth Hallam (JRAI), Dr Michaela Benson (Sociological Review), Professor Martin Holbraad  (Social Analysis), Dr Robin Smith (Qualitative Research).

The event will take place on March 24th between 16:00 and 18:00 in the Swingland Room, Marlowe Building, and is sponsored by CER and the Faculty of Social Science. The event page, featuring a detailed programme, can be viewed here.
