Fieldwork in ethnographic research on multilingualism, requires the researcher to engage with people and communities. To explore some aspects of this theme, the research project Multilingualism in Transitions (MultiTrans) invites students and colleagues to an open seminar with invited talks on the topic ethnography and relations in multilingualism research.
Relations between researcher, participants and the wider community are significant for ethnographic knowledge-construction and might determine for instance the types of data the researcher gets during fieldwork. Relations in ethnographic research also include research ethical questions concerning for instance power relations, informed consent, and researcher positionality and reflexivity.
