Write part of an autoethnography in which you qualitatively research and report on a subculture that you participate in. In the process, say something new about this group that you didn’t already know. Your audience for this paper is university-level sociologists.
You’ll write the following sections as part of your auto-ethnography:
An Introduction that puts your research into scholarly context.
A Methods section that describes and justifies your interview/observation methods.
A Narrative section that tells the story of your research, relating findings from memories, interviews, and observations (and possibly diary entries).
A Discussion section that gives tentative analysis and suggests new research directions.
A References section cited in Chicago (Author-Date) style.
In this project, you are both the researcher and part of the thing being researched. The thing being researched is a subculture. What’s a subculture? We’ll define subcultures early in the unit, but basically, it’s a group of people who identify themselves by some shared interest and set of activities. For example, “Bronies” are a subculture (Google it). Hardcore punk fans are a subculture. Vegetarians are a subculture. New Orleans Pelicans fans are a subculture.
So, then, you’re supposed to conduct research to better understand a subculture that you already participate in. That research should involve (1) reading existing academic research related to your project; (2) formulating a research question you want to answer about your subculture; (3) writing about how that research has affected your way of looking at your subculture; (4) observing that subculture in action online while taking notes on what you find; (5) interviewing some specific member of that subculture by Skype; (6) reflecting on and telling stories of your own experience of that subculture; and (7) presenting this information in a format like what you see described above, and like what you will see in samples we read in this unit.
