October 2015 - Institutional Ethnography: Care in Higher Education

Samuel Dent

This month’s case study focuses on the experiences of students in higher education, who have caring responsibilities for children under 18 years old. The writer, a doctorate student himself with former experience of work in higher education, uses institutional ethnography as his main method to study such a sensitive topic and poses crucial questions regarding the practicalities and validity of his research study. For ethnographers and scholars interested in applying the institutional ethnography method and higher education practitioners, this case is a must read.
