Through the publication of original manuscripts and edited volumes, it explores the relationships between civil society, the state, and the structures and institutions spanning both.

Ethnography is never mere description, rather it is a theory of describing that has always been controversial as to the what and how thus inspiring a dynamic intellectual process. The process has been methodologically eclectic and innovative, governed by both consensual and outdated rules.

Volume 6, No. 3, Art. 44 – September Focused Ethnography 1). Hubert Knoblauch. Abstract: In this paper I focus on a distinctive kind of sociological ethnography which is particularly, though not exclusively, adopted in applied research. It has been proposed that this branch of ethnography be referred to as focused ethnography.This major book from one of the world’s foremost authorities recaptures the classic inspirations of ethnographic fieldwork in sociology and anthropology, reflecting on decades of methodological development and empirical research.

It is part manifesto, part guidance on the appropriate focus of the ethnographic gaze. The volume is organized into three sections. The first systematically locates ethnography firmly in its relevant historical and intellectual contexts.

The roots of ethnography are pinpointed and the pattern of its development is demonstrated. The second section examines the contribution of ethnography to major fields of substantive research.5/5(1).
