EthnoBorrel - Building a Community of Practitioners

Monday 30 September 2019
Pieter de la Court
Wassenaarseweg 52
2333 AK Leiden

EthnoBorrels offers networking with other professional ethnographers and people who want to work with ethnography. You can present your work, seek advice from peers, discover opportunities, advance your skills, and link up with broader global networks.

Each event is held in a different location, and is usually hosted by a company or organisation. The format of each event varies according to members' needs.

Building a Community of Practitioners - with special guest Rita Denny

EthnoBorrel is excited to welcome Rita Denny, Executive Director of EPIC, to talk with us about building a community of practitioners both within Europe and in collaboration with our neighbours across the Atlantic. This is a great opportunity for us to get to know Rita and talk specifically about how we can grow our community in collaboration with EPIC.

For this session, we invited ethnographers and trainers to give lightening presentations (5 minutes) on their practice. See the detailed programme below.
