Before writing this paper students are encouraged to do a number of things. 1 Choose the setting where you will conduct your autoethnography This could be. within your home for example you could focus on the interactions between you and. your parents siblings roommates animal companions or significant others Or you. could focus on your friendships outside of the home You could also do an. autoethnography of an activity you do regularly in or outside the home such as working a. job attending protests exercising gardening cooking shopping online meetings social. media etc Choose something that you can take field notes on over a time period of a few. days Make sure that whatever you choose is a rich enough personal experience that it can. be described in 4 pages and that you can relate it to some broader issue of interest to. sociology such as subculture economic inequality racism gender relations and so on. 2 Take field notes before you begin writing the assignment making sure to note the. date setting and your personal experiences Field notes can be in whatever form is most. useful to you to evoke what you are thinking feeling experiencing For example you. could jot words or drawings in a journal You could type notes on a laptop Remember. that although you can make notes about the other people or animals that you interact. with you will primarily be doing an introspective study of your own role reactions. thoughts feelings and interactions An autoethnography focuses on the self If you do. describe others in your paper make sure that you do not identify anyone every person. mentioned in the final paper must be anonymous, 3 Take your rough field notes and make more elaborate and detailed notes Focus.
on items that relate to broader societal issues or those that say something about societal. structures power inequality culture gender roles and so on For example if you are. doing your project on family relationships think about how family power dynamics have. changed when children who have left the nest return to live with their parents during the. pandemic If the paper is about a working environment how have the working conditions. you experience changed because of COVID 19 If you were describing your experiences. grocery shopping perhaps discuss how you experience social policing and how that. makes you feel or interacts with your personal identity Writing good notes before you. write the final paper will help you better organize your thoughts feelings and. experiences, The assignment must be submitted online through CU LEARN on or before July. 22nd 2020 by 11 59pm Please note that papers submitted via email will not be graded.
