Lessons from overseas fieldwork
The Researchers in Development Network is giving all PhD researchers a chance to share their top tips for doing overseas fieldwork at an event on 18 August.
The Network, through the Centre for Global Development, is organising a seminar aimed at all those conducting fieldwork in low to middle income countries. For those who have done their fieldwork, it will be an opportunity to share their experiences, and, for those whose fieldwork is still to come, its a chance to ask questions and learn.
Three PhD students who have done their fieldwork will talk about things they wish they'd known beforehand and give their top tips for others. There will then be an hour for questions and discussions.
The three presenters will be:
Dr Hannah Cross from POLIS, on ethnographic research among West African migrant communities in Senagal, Mauritania and Spain
Vivek Mathur from the Sustainability Research Institute, on ethnographic research into users of a sustainable technology in a village in India
Rosemary Morgan from the Nuffield Centre for International Health and Development, on research into HIV/AIDS policy processes in faith-based non-governmental organisations in Tanzania
The seminar will take place:
On: Thursday 18 August 2011
At: 11am - 12.30pm
In: Room 1.15, Baines Wing
Spaces will be limited. To attend, please email the Centre for Global Development by Monday 15 August 2011, noting any specific areas that you would like the presenters to discuss.
