Ethnographic Fieldwork

Training in Ethnographic field research has been the strength and the most salient feature of the Masters programme. We have maintained the tradition of ethnographic fieldwork for more than 25 years and covered different tribes of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Gujarat, Orissa and West Bengal.

After the first semester, students are taken to a tribal area for the ethnographic fieldwork spanning over two weeks. Data are collected on various social and cultural aspects of the community. Students make seminar presentations based on their ethnographic fieldwork in the annual departmental seminar. Fieldwork reports are assessed by external referees.

In December 2008, the department conducted Ethnographic Fieldwork amongst Kokan Tribals of Dolhare, Taluka Surgana, Nashik, Maharashtra.
