Need to rethink your research plan?
 
CUST micro-courses devote 12 hours to exploring a particular method, moment, or phenomenon. Although students can take 3 of them to make up a half-course credit, they are primarily meant to be opportunities for regrouping and enrichment at any point in the PhD or MA degree.
 
This spring, we are excited to invite graduate students and faculty from across the humanities and social sciences to join Dr. Ayca Tomac in discussion of “Ethnography in the Time of COVID-19.” Whether you are engaged in ethnography specifically, or needing to adjust or be more self-aware in your approach to research and teaching given the constraints and urgent questions of this time, we invite you to join us. Readings include Max Brooks, World War Z; Wednesday Martin, Primates of Park Avenue; and articles on critical pedagogy, autoethnography, and collective response to social crisis.
 
Classes will take place via Teams between May 7-June 11, 11:30-1:30. Auditors are welcome but they must attend at least 4 sessions and participate in discussion. Students taking the course can expect assignments approximately 1/3 in weight from a regular half-course.
 
Interested students and faculty should contact Ayca Tomac for enrollment details.
