Professor Gareth Fisher will give a lecture on methods of ethnographic research on the basis of his several years of fieldwork experience in Asia. In this class, we will explore some key methods and challenges in conducting research on religion and social change in contemporary China.

Although th e masterclass will be based on specific case studies from China, there will also be a general discussion on ethnographic research not limited to only China, but inclusive of critical theories and concepts that are applicable to the fieldwork-related dilemmas in other regions.
