Last Week Review:
Lofland: naturalistic inquiry t maybe, maybe Lofland is suggesting that methodology is less important
and that once you get into the field as illusions of objectivity vanish and the ethnographer has to re-
acclimate to doing fieldwork in their own way (our class becomes an exercise in futility).
Lofland: axis of difference (religion, race, ethnicity, history, politics), descriptive/ascribed/ascriptive
catagories (?)
Woolf: location t positionality (?) t the ethnographer must discuss their position from outside their
fieldsite
Theme: no matter how many times you observe a place, the people change and the experience is not
static t Z}µPZZvÀ]}vuvu]vZuU^]vPZ]vPÇ}µ[ÀvÀv(}_, a library

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
