Journal Entry On Thursday September 5th as a class we revisited the basis of the course, the Syllabus, along with supplementary readings from the Field working book. Each individual student was able to express their insights on the matter at hand and summarize a point that grasped their attention. When listening to what other people thought about the course and their opinions on the readings I felt that I was able to better grasp the feel for ethnography. One student introduced the point that he was uncomfortable with the feeling of the ethnography on the homeless people since he felt like the paper itself was too linear and did not offer any flow in which I could relate to at the time. However, another student brought to light that he felt the complete opposite and that he enjoyed the format completely since the structure gave him a clear path to the different scenarios that the writer was introducing. Another student shared the fact that she in fact used to volunteer at a homeless shelter and she could relate to the readers experience and could hold herself some unknown bias, The discussion in class also opened my eyes to the different elements that create a well-organized ethnography. Whether it be an artifact or just solid accounts and information. One interesting point that was brought up by our professor was that if the person we are interviewing gets offended or something goes terribly wrong the better it is for our ethnography.
