The purpose of this course is twofold: One, provide training in field methods engaging sociological research, or 'fieldwork,' with primary emphasis on participant-observation. Two, establish a forum for students to direct their work and creative energies towards social, environmental and political issues in the public sphere. This approach allows the researcher to discover 'communities,' to create a channel of communication, to find ways of continual engagement and project development, and to perhaps carry knowledge and expression beyond the immediate workings of the community and into the realm of culture.
