A Different Kind of Ethnography: Imaginative Practices and Creative Methodologies
Denielle Elliott, Dara Culhane
University of Toronto Press, Jan 1, 2017 - Social Science - 160 pages
Building on the sensory ethnographic trend in contemporary sociocultural anthropology, this collection introduces the idea of a different kind of ethnography: an imaginative and creative approach to anthropological inquiry that is collaborative, open-ended, embodied, affective, and experimental. The authors treat ethnography as a methodology that includes the whole process of ethnography, from being fully present while engaging with the experience to analyzing representing, and communicating the results, with the hope of capturing different kinds of knowledge and experiences
The book is structured around various methodologies-sensing, walking, writing, performing, and recording--and includes innovative exercises that allow both seasoned and aspiring ethnographers to develop a practice that can deepen and extend ethnographic inquiry.

This is a fantastic book with a wealth of activities for experiential learning. I have used it in a number of university level anthropology courses that I teach, and am currently using it in my ethnography class. Highly recommended. 5 stars!
