Fieldwork NL

Fieldwork NL is a core course in the Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology Bachelor programme, in which second-year bachelor students learn how to design their own research, conduct fieldwork and report on their findings. Students work together in small groups to develop a research design and do three weeks of fieldwork in the Netherlands. The groups write a research report and present their findings during the Fieldwork NL conference on Friday 29 April.
