Chicago Ethnographic Field School

The Ethnographic Field School is a joint program of the Department of 
Anthropology and the Center for Cultural Understanding and Change, The Field 
Museum. Through the Ethnographic Field School (EFS), students learn 
ethnographic field methods and conduct a research study in one of the many 
ethnic communities in the greater Chicago area, in collaboration with a 
community-based organization. EFS offers students a field work experience 
with an emphasis on applied anthropology, and immerses them in a local 
community through volunteer service and work with local sponsors. Placements 
are individually negotiated to meet each student's interests. EFS is an 8 
week full-time program. The program runs from Monday, June 19, 2006 to 
Friday, August 11, 2006. Students may enroll for one, two, or three course 
credits. Students will meet once a week for class work in field methods, 
project design, data collection strategies, and data analysis techniques.
