New in Showcase: Public Ethnography


The Library is pleased to host the Public Ethnography as Innovative Learning exhibit in Showcase, the Library’s space for promoting Royal Roads' innovative, applicable and real-world research.

On display now until December 2018, the exhibit highlights the latest publication by Phillip Vannini, Canada Research Chair in Innovative Learning and Public Ethnography. Doing Public Ethnography: How to Create and Disseminate Ethnographic and Qualitative Research to Wide Audiences outlines practical strategies and tools for sharing ethnographic and qualitative research through widely accessible media, and provides social scientists across all disciplines with concrete tactics for mobilizing knowledge beyond the academic realm*. The Showcase exhibit features the research of recipients of Vannini’s public ethnography funding, offering a unique window into how various forms of student expertise can be put to use in the creation of innovative and collaborative research products.

If you have research you would like to promote through Showcase, please contact Devina Dandar, Scholarly Communications Librarian, to discuss what Showcase can do for you and your work.
