The Ethnography Lab hosts a regular speaker series, workshop series, and methods safé during the academic year (September-April). These events take place in the University of Toronto anthropology building, room AP330 at 19 Russell Street, Toronto.
In addition, our various interest groups (see the “Groups” drop-down menu in the main menu) frequently plan and organize a variety of events, workshops, and talks about the many facets of ethnographic research and engagement. Please contact the group’s convener or the Ethnography Lab coordinator if you would like more information about an event.
Most of our events are free and open to the public.
