write an ethnography, you must take at least one concept we have covered in the course and explore it further
through an example on which you conduct preliminary research. Rather than summarizing the work of other
authors, this option entails doing your own (mini) field-work. This could involve looking at people’s instagram
posts, studying interactions in Facebook groups, investigating sneaker culture on reddit, or many other options.
Concepts here can be broad—perhaps you want to research masculinity within a particular group—but given the
length of the paper, if the concept you’re interested in is broad then your field site should be narrow.
Students should choose a topic, conduct research, and develop a thesis based on that research. You must draw on
at least one theoretical argument from a readings on the syllabus in analyzing your research, and are welcome to
integrate more than one. For example, you could use Evelyn Nakano Glenn’s integrated framework, or Sarah
Haley’s approach to understanding race and gender, or David Valentine’s conceptualization of labels and
categories, etc.
We are living through a pandemic, and I do not want students to endanger themselves or others. Please do not
conduct any in-person research for this paper. If you feel you have a compelling reason that you need to do inperson research and can do so safely, please email me to discuss it. Please also be sure you are conducting
research in an ethical way. You can reference our recorded class session on the final paper for additional
guidance or email me with any questions.
Your proposal I copied and pasted what you wrote: I will conduct research on Evelyn Nakano Glenn’s integrated
frameworks interpolate with the current events. Also on people affiliated with the LGBTQ movement who still
receive backlash from society despite the numerous awareness campaigns. In my ethnographic research on
Instagram posts on the LGBTQ movement, I identified different tags used to demean people expressing their
sexuality. For example, lesbians are often referred to as “dykes”, while men, “faggots. However, some cases
reveal ignorance because macro insults should not be permissible in contemporary society. Nevertheless, for
society to overcome the challenges, it is imperative to embark on a miss-education course that involves
unlearning the traditional society’s static stereotypes.
