This workshop aims to fill this gap by offering 2 days of training for anyone actively engaged in, or simply interested in research relying on qualitative data collection involving a direct contact to the "field", be it in the form of observational methods (participant or non participant observation) or of conversational methods (interviewing, focus groups etc.). Underlying the structure of this workshop is the argument that qualitative scientists and historians have much to learn from ethnographic practice, political science, and even journalism. During this workshop, we want to bring key insights of traditional ethnography, political science and journalism for historians and discuss how "going ethnographic and political scientist", "being journalist" in practice or in spirit - can enrich, inspire, facilitate or improve history (field) research.
