CALL FOR PAPERS

Teaching in the Field: Investigating the Ethics of Education in
Ethnographic Research
An interdisciplinary Workshop in Anthropology and Education:  19 November 2011

Hosted by the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology and the
Department of Education, University of Oxford

Keynote speaker: Professor David Parkin

Workshop Organizers:
Ann Lewis, MA; ISCA (U Oxford)
Rachel Hall-Clifford, PhD, MPH, MSc; ISCA and Dept. of Primary Health
Care (U Oxford)
The workshop is organised in collaboration with the journal Teaching
Anthropology (www.teachinganthropology.org)

Education, as both process and place, forms a locus of many of the
most deeply-held cultural beliefs and practices within a society.
Teaching involves cultural particularities ranging from modes of
knowledge transfer to expectations of student-teacher power dynamics
to age and gender norms.  Anthropologists and other social scientists
frequently engage in teaching practices during field research.
Teaching can be harnessed as a research method, creating entry to a
field site and opening new possibilities for learning for the
researcher.  In this vein, anthropologists have affiliated themselves
with and taught at local schools, colleges or universities. Through
these undertakings, the anthropologist is exposed not only to a wider
cross-section of people than might otherwise be accessible, but they
can also experience first-hand what it means to teach and learn in the
local context. Teaching can also be utilized as a form of local
development as anthropologists create courses, teaching programs, or
research departments, often forming long-term educational
partnerships.  Such projects simultaneously change the anthropologist
and anthropology as well as field site communities, while creating new
knowledge locally and transnationally.

What are the ethical implications of becoming involved in education in
field research settings?  What is the role of education as an
ethnographic research tool, and how does it enhance or challenge the
relationship between the anthropologist, students, and communities in
the field?  This workshop aims to address these questions and to begin
a dialogue on how to ethically manage educational endeavours in field
research settings.

Thematic questions to be addressed by the workshop include:
	In what ways is teaching also a form of learning for
anthropologists? What is the ethnographic significance of teaching as
learning in the field?
	What is the meaning and impact of teaching in the field on
anthropologists, anthropology, and local people?
	How could ethnographic research be enhanced by teaching in the field
and what are the challenges?
	How does teaching in the field change the field site and its
relationship to the anthropologist? What are the critical ethical
implications?

This workshop aims to explore different forms and meanings of teaching
in the field. Our focus will be on the ethical implications that
teaching has for engagement with the local people and the ways these
educational relationships shape the ethnographic enterprise. While
Education Research and Anthropology have evolved as separate
disciplines within academia, we would like to explore possibilities
for their theoretical and methodological convergence, particularly
with regards to enhancing the potential of teaching in the field both
as a research method and as a vehicle for local development.

Panel sessions during the workshop will include:
	Teaching as an ethnographic research method
	Teaching anthropology to local community members and capacity building
	Teaching ethnographic research methods to foreign students in the field

The purpose of the workshop is to focus on ethnographic methodologies
and challenges that have occurred when teaching in the field, and
researchers from all relevant disciplines are encouraged to
participate. Please email the workshop registration form to Ann Lewis
at [log in to unmask] by August 1, 2011.  Participants will be
notified regarding the status of their submission and the final
program of the workshop on September 15, 2011. Selected papers will be
submitted as a special journal issue to Teaching Anthropology.  Any
further questions may be addressed to the workshop organizers: Ann
Lewis at [log in to unmask] or Rachel Hall-Clifford at
