Ways of Walking and Working

Part I: An informal seminar on selected readings on movement, nature and ethnography

Part II: A Walk through the Tijuana River Estuary

Dr. Ingold's research is driven by a concern for knowing at the intersection between environment, human learning and evolution, and built structures and institutions. A few of his books are PERCEPTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT, LINES: A BRIEF HISTORY, BEING ALIVE AND MAKING. His current project, KNOWING FROM THE INSIDE: ANTHROPOLOGY, ART, ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN, seeks to reconfigure the relation between the practice of academic inquiry in the human sciences and the knowledge to which it gives rise.

Please RSVP for both events to Erin Cory at ecory [at] ucsd [dot] edu

About SED

The Studio for Ethnographic Design (SED) was founded to enhance ethnographic research pedagogy and deepen the connections among a wide variety of ethnographic researchers on the UC San Diego campus. The studio is a space in which faculty and graduate students meet to discuss research design and methods, debate ethical practice, critique ethnographic writing, present in-process research, and engage with scholars and practitioners who are at the forefront of redesigning the method for new arenas and platforms, and theorizing ethnographic practice. SED is a UC San Diego Center for the Humanities Working Group.

Dr. Ingold's conversation is made possible through the support of the UC San Diego Department of Visual Arts.
