About

The Ethnography Commons is a collaborative project based at Victoria University of Wellington that aims to rethink the boundaries of ethnographic research, practice, and pedagogy.  The commons is both a space for thinking about methodological practice, and a site for developing an ethos to guide that practice.

Our members are drawn from across academic disciplines and from all levels of scholarship, from students to senior professors.  Working together we discuss research design, debate ethical practice, experiment with ethnographic poetics, and explore other issues in contemporary ethnography.

Our goal is to explore the boundaries of the common world, and also to remake them.
