CALL FOR PAPERS: 8th Annual Chicago Ethnography Conference

We welcome graduate students to submit abstracts for paper presentations at
the Eighth Annual Chicago Ethnography Conference. We encourage graduate
students in all academic disciplines to present their ethnographic research,
and to meet colleagues with similar research interests at the conference.

The Eighth Annual Chicago Ethnography Conference will be held at Ida Noyes
Hall on the University of Chicago campus (1212 East 59th St.) on Saturday,
April 15, 2006 from 9a.m. to 5p.m.

Papers can be based on a variety of ethnographic field methods including,
but not limited to: field observation, in-depth interviews, focus group
interviews, auto-ethnography, visual ethnography and other forms of
qualitative research. We welcome papers in virtually all substantive areas.
In the past, presentation topics have included: culture, class, crime,
education, ethnicity, gender family, globalization, health and illness,
immigration, medicine, methodology, race, religion, social movements,
technology, urban poverty and work and employment.

Your submitted abstract should be no longer than 250 words and will be
accompanied by: your university affiliation, your contact information,
keywords associated with the paper that will help us place it in a session,
and a description of any technical support needs you have for your
presentation.  Abstracts should be submitted through the form on the
conference website: http://sociology.uchicago.edu/ethnography/ . You will
receive a confirmation email within 72 hours after submitting your proposal.

Papers will be refereed and assigned to either formal paper sessions or
roundtable sessions at the ultimate discretion of the program committee, but
please indicate in your submission if you have a strong preference for a
roundtable session.
