Applied Ethnography – Call for Book Reviewer

Joe Kotarba’s recent article “Symbolic Interaction and Applied Research” in Symbolic Interaction is very timely and coincides with the publication of a number of very interesting applied ethnographies. The field of applied ethnography of course is not a new area of research but ethnographic methods have a long history in business and management – although as Robert Dingwall recently wrote on “Quantophrenia is Back in Town” in the social sciences. I have just received a list of applied ethnographies published by Left Coast Press that I would like to have reviewed in a Review Essay by one book reviewer. The length for the review would be roughly 1800 words. If you are interested in writing the review please get in touch with me at

Here are the books:

Giti Jordan, ed. Advancing Ethnography in Corporate Environments
Sam Ladner, Practical Ethnography
Patti Sunderland and Rita Denny,  eds. Doing Anthropology in Consumer Research
Brian Moeran, The Business of Creativity
