CEAD 2014: Sensual Landscapes of Ethnography

University of Waikato, 25 - 28 November 2014

The third international Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines (CEAD) hui has been announced. The conference CEAD 2014: Sensual Landscapes of Ethnography will take place from 25-28 November 2014 and will return to the beautiful campus of the University of Waikato in Hamilton in Aotearoa New Zealand. The CEAD, an international ethnography conference and hui, welcomes all forms of engagement in ethnographic disciplinary practice, and aims to stimulate rich intellectual discourse. As a Southern Hemisphere conference, it offers a richness of perspective that is slightly counter to the dominant, hegemonic worldview of many ethnographic pieces; for example, informed by a Kaupapa Māori wordview of “research,” discussions of participant/researcher “ethics” take on a decidedly-richer, more nuanced, view. Researchers and practitioners from across the disciplines of law, anthropology, arts & letters, education, geography, health, management, business, psychology, sociology, cultural, and ethnic and gender studies - and any other discipline where ethnography advances scholarship and public understanding of the way groups and individuals interact and live their lives into being - are invited to share in the rich diversity that the conference and hui provides.
