Ethnography?

What do I care? Why do I care? How do I care?

a scientific description of the culture of a society by someone who has lived in it

Originating in anthropology, this term traditionally refers to a practice in which researchers
spend long periods living within a culture in order to study it. The term has been adopted within
qualitative market research to describe occasions where researchers spend time - hours, days
or weeks - observing and/or interacting with participants in areas of their everyday lives. This
contrasts with interview-based research in which interaction with respondents is limited to a
conventional interview or group discussion format, is more limited in time, and often takes place
outside the participant's own environment

Why is this problem important? Why should we resolve it?

Make sure the research is useful and the cultural communities can make use of its
outcome.

It should be sustainable. Economic and beneficial to the communities.
