Experimental workshops offer the conference participants a chance to practice ethnographic research and apply concrete ethnographic tools. The aim is to familiarize with particular forms of doing and using ethnography, as well as to reflect on the experience. Experimental ethnographic sessions/workshops are given a seminar room and scheduled to the conference program in a same way as regular paper sessions. We however encourage the workshops to move from the seminar rooms to other spaces at the university or outside at the campus depending on how their coordinators plan to implement them. Experimental ethnographic sessions/workshops last from 1 to 1,5 hours. The workshops are open for all conference participants, but the organizers may limit the number of participants and require pre-registration. The program of the workshops and detailed information about the registration will be announced soon.
