Rendering Culture and Multi-Targeted Ethnography in Applied Contexts

O'Dell, Thomas LU (2014) THICK GRIP ON DATA? – Ethnological Intepretations and Analysis VIII Ethnology Days 2014
Abstract
In this paper our objective is to discuss the manner in which our engagement with applied cultural analysis has spurred us to reassess a number of fundamental underlying concepts and practices of ethnological and anthropological work. The paper opens by explaining how our engagement with applied research (and education) has changed our conceptual framing of ethnography and inspired us to new theoretical developments. For the purposes of this talk we limit the discussion to three themes, Collaborations, Composing Ethnography and Rendering Culture. In closing, we argue for a need to re-frame ethnography as not only a multi-sited practice, but even as a phenomenon that is in need of being understood as multi-targeted.
