Cross-Disciplinary Graduate Student Workshop on Fieldwork

On May 9th OSU will host a workshop designed for (under)graduate students and faculty across disciplines who plan to engage in or have recently started to engage in fieldwork-based research. The goals of the workshop are to explore and exchange ideas about practical issues of doing fieldwork and to continue building a community of fieldworkers on the OSU campus. The topics are (1) making and sustaining contacts in the field, (2) fieldwork in different kinds of communities, and (3) the Institutional Review Board. I will lead the break-out session “Fieldwork, Outreach & Engagement: Examining the Joys & Challenges of Doing Good While Doing Science”. For more information, visit the website.
