Introduction 5 Vivien Walsh, Carole Cohen and Albert Richards, in Chapter 11, also focus on users and how their needs may be incorporated (successfully or otherwise) in the design of high-tech products. After first surveying the evolution of user orientation, user-friendliness, user-centred design and human–machine interaction in the ICT industry, they report an ethnographic study of telecom product design. They found that the job of the design team in a high-tech industry where firms collaborate was just as likely to be the design

reflexivity within one’s ongoing work with organizations, communities and other actors. There will be an emphasis on techniques of creative and reflective writing, journalling and auto-ethnography that students can use to understand and position themselves within their research and practice, and to develop and express their findings. We will explore issues of identity, values, knowledge and belief systems, and the way these influence behaviour and interventions, and shape the researcher’s action, interpretations and data analysis (Institute of Development Studies, 2008

which the vans discussed in the Bradford focus group were a part. Five months later, and in partnership with civil society organisations in six different areas in England, Scotland and Wales, our funded project, ‘Mapping Immigration Controversy’ (MIC) began. We used multiple methods (ethnographic observation, focus groups, qualitative interviews and a survey) to research Vaken-related policy and media narratives and associated initiatives. We

including, most significantly, the mapping of India, but also the collection and systematic classification of flora, fauna, ethnology and architecture. The enumerative was driven by the perceived need to collect and classify data. Over time, those on prices, customs, duties and coinage were supplemented by more ethnographic concerns, realized in the massive

Orgies of drink and women: ethnography, morality and STIs in Buhaya When British officials displaced their German predecessors in Buhaya, in north-west Tanganyika, during the First World War, they found themselves in possession of a territory with several unusual features.

disciplinary boundaries, with the ‘authority’ of the white European male voice increasingly coming under fire from both marginalised academic communities and ‘research subjects’. This issue of accountability has been particularly developed by feminist sociologists, including Stanley and Wise (1993) and Roseneil (1995). This feminist strand of sociology acknowledges the importance, in qualitative and especially ethnographic research, of the relationship between the evolution of ideas in the research process and the emotional journey undertaken by the researcher. For Roseneil

consumption, performance and negotiation associated with maps or mapping projects. In practical terms, a variety of methods are used to examine mapping processes. Kitchin, Gleeson and Dodge (2013) employ an insider ethnography to relate the dynamic process of data collection and map making/use/re-use/ re-authoring, akin to a diary or narrative journal of the life of their map(s). Through interviews and participant observation, Del Casino and Hanna (2006) used performative and ethnographic methods to explore their ‘map spaces’. Chris Perkins writes too that performative

. (The evolution of his thinking on this matter is summarised in Swann, 1989.) The purpose of taking this detour is not to assess the success or otherwise of the Econometric Society experiment. Rather, it is to describe the setting in which revealed preference became the preferred empirical approach to analysing questions of consumption. Revealed preference required methodologies that are consistent with the Econometric Society vision: stated preference and ethnographic work did not. 28 Innovation by demand Revealed preference is, however, a problematic technique

The second fundamental research strategy is prospective, that is, to collect longitudinal data as some part of the process of recovery from mass violence proceeds. The most suitable methodological approach for this is ethnographic, where immersion can promote a deeper understanding of the context under study and help establish the networks of trust and rapport that facilitate the collection of valid observational and interview data.
