Representation & Representativeness at EPIC2019

On Monday, Nov. 11, I’ll be joining Donna Lanclos, Amber Greene, Ruchika Muchhala, and Autumn Sanders Foster to discuss how ethnographic researchers think about representing the experiences of others, especially in the context of industry research, at EPIC2019 in Providence, RI. From the abstract:

But our work can end up reinforcing a distinction between people who “have experience” that we study for insights and people who “have expertise” to use, shape, and monetize that experience.

Donna Lanclos previews the panel discussion on the challenges of representation for ethnographic researchers over on the EPIC blog, Perspectives:
