Ethnographic Inquiry Proposal 
Introduction:My proposed research is based on one of William Shakespeare’s manyoutstanding plays, “Much Ado About Nothing”. Not only have I seen themodern version of the movie, but I also have read the old English version of the play. My research site includes my room, the library, and my Englishclass, just in case I have a few questions that I need to clarify with myprofessor. The background information that I have on my particular selectionis that I have read a few other Shakespeare plays and I understand hislanguage, writing style, and his unusual sense of humor.Purpose:I plan to decode the era through the novel “Much Ado about Nothing”because I feel it embodies the era in a way not described by textbooks andother history details.Methodology: The questions that I will ask are not questions directed to the deceasedWilliam Shakespeare. My questions are directed to the literary historians,critics, English professors, students and anyone else who thinks they know athing or two about Shakespeare’s writings. My ultimate discovery for thisproject is to show you how to convey ethnography through Shakespeare. Inother words, I want to analyze his play (Much Ado About Nothing) and breakit down to show subcultures, language, codes, behaviors, rituals, and somuch more.
