a conversation about ethnographic methods

Meetup in NYC

If you happen to be in NYC, please join us for the 2nd AnthroTech MeetUp on Thursday, 13th December, 7pm at the Pless Hall 1st floor lounge.

Max Foxman, a PhD candidate at Columbia University and a recent grad from NYU’s MCC program, will discuss his recent ethnographic and theoretical work on why people use gamified online products like Foursquare.  He’ll also address his current work on people’s interaction with “Internet culture.”

April Strickland is a documentary filmmaker and a Ph.D. candidate in the Anthropology Department at New York University.  She works with indigenous Maori film and television producers in New Zealand to investigate contemporary connections between media, sovereignty, and social movements.

We’ll also have audience Q&A time followed by freeform networking made more fun by the free wine that we’ll have for you!  Please RSVP to organizer Uma Anand at http://www.meetup.com/AnthroTech-Anthropology-in-Technology/events/93347282/

I am an anthropologist and user experience (UX) professional. I lead a UX team that works in the healthcare space on both SaaS products and custom client solutions. As an anthropologist, my research has focused on work practices and work environments. I have a special interest in how institutions respond to macro-economic, industry, and regional trends, and how the resulting organizational changes affect the lives of employees.
