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 an UC San Diego Center for the Humanities Working Group located at the UC San Diego, Visual Arts Studio for Ethnograpic Design at the Structural and Materials Engineering Bldg (SME) 408.
