Final Paper Preparation: Part I – Research Project
In preparation for your Final Paper, this week you will submit information about the event at which you will conduct participant observation and conduct library research on it.
Explain how you will adhere to the Statement on Ethics . of the American Anthropological Association while conducting your fieldwork, and inform the community of your intention to observe them. Make sure you obtain permission beforehand to observe them. Make sure not to directly involve vulnerable groups such as minors, disabled individuals, or other groups that may require special ethical considerations. While you can observe a ritual involving minors such as baptism given the consent of parents, you should not interview minors or otherwise engage with them.
Try to choose an event that is outside of your usual religious tradition (e.g., do not go to the church service you regularly attend unless there is no other viable option).
Appropriate sites include, but are not limited to
Note: If you are unable to attend a specific site, you may use the following alternative sites for your ethnography.
This should be used only in special circumstances, and you must have the permission of your instructor in advance to do so.
In your paper
In Week Three, you will conduct your first fieldwork observations. In Weeks Four or Five, you will conduct follow up observations. Therefore, this week, you must provide, in narrative form, a justification of the feasibility of your research. For example, if you intend to observe baptism in a Catholic church, it happens once a month and so a follow-up visit may not be possible. Establish contacts with people in charge of the event and those you will interview. Point out in your contact at least one person you can do follow up interview with. Get in touch with people at the event and find out whether your proposed event is feasible or not. Provide names of contacts as well as how you have arranged to stay in touch with them for the duration of your project.
The paper must be two to three pages in length (excluding the title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. You must use at least two scholarly sources. Cite your sources in text and on the references page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center..
