Ethnography is the study of social interactions, behaviours, and perceptions that occur within groups, teams, organisations, and communities. Its roots can be traced back to anthropological studies of small, rural (and often remote) societies that were undertaken in the early 1900s, when researchers such as Bronislaw Malinowski and Alfred Radcliffe-Brown participated in these societies over long periods and documented their social arrangements and belief systems. This approach was later adopted by members of the Chicago School of Sociology (for example, Everett Hughes, Robert Park, Louis Wirth) and applied to a variety of urban settings in their studies of social life. The central aim of ethnography is to provide rich, holistic insights into people’s views and actions, as well asthenature(thatis,sights,sounds)ofthelocationtheyinhabit,through the collection of detailed observations and interviews. As Hammersley states, The task [of ethnographers] is to document the culture, the perspectives and practices, of the people in these settings. The aim is to get inside the way each group of peoples the world.
