Subject: Adv. Ethnographic Workshop: 2nd Announcement -- Reg. Form and

This is the second announcement for the Advanced Ethnographic
Methods Workshop, and includes a registration form. Anyone wanting
a tentative outline of the topics covered, should contact me directly.

NAPA and Northern Arizona University Announce
Second Summer Workshop
for Advanced Ethnographic Research Methods.

The National Association for the Practice of Anthropology
(NAPA) will be co-sponsoring a summer workshop on Advanced
Ethnographic Research Methods at Northern Arizona University the
week of June 2nd to June 5th. The workshop will be open to
professional anthropologists, university faculty, and graduate
students. It will require an average level of computer literacy.
Potential participants should be able to do basic word processing
and have some knowledge of DOS commands. At this time, software
for the advanced ethnographic methods is only available on IBM
compatible computers.

The advanced methods workshop will introduce a series of
computer programs that assist in ethnographic data collection,
data management, and analysis. These programs concentrate on
three areas of research assistance: 1) ethnographic fieldnote and
interview storage, coding, retrieval, and analysis; 2) advanced
cognitive research techniques (consensus models, pile sorts,
etc.) and 3) network analysis. The primary computer programs that
will be used to demonstrate these techniques include TALLY 3.0,
ANTHROPAC 3.24, and CATIJ. The training will include hands-on
opportunities, using Northern Arizona University's Ethnographic
Data Management Laboratory. All participants will have the
opportunity to practice using the software that is presented
during the workshop.

Logistical Details: The workshop will begin on the morning
of June 2nd, at 8:30 am, and will finish mid-afternoon on the
5th. Participants can take advantage of on-campus housing (dorm
style) at a cost of $41.60 per night per person, including 3
meals per day. The rate is based on double occupancy. A single
room can be reserved for an additional $10.00 fee, or
participants can make their own arrangements at local motels.
This is the high season in Flagstaff, so reservations should be
made very early.

Registration costs for the workshop are $75.00 per person,.
Software purchase is not included in the registration fee. Pre
and post-conference purchase of the workshop software is also
possible (ANTHROPAC $25, TALLY $50). Enrollment limited to 25
