Concentric ethnography and didactics. Notes to non-anthropologists

Jose luis Ramos Ramirez (2022)

Taking into account the need to train students and professionals who are not anthropologists in the ethnographic work, multiple manuals have been published presenting this work as purely methodological, even as a well-intentioned example of qualitative approach; however when reviewing the concept offered in this literature I find that is an image that does not do comply with the complexity that Ethnography involves. Therefore, in this essay I display series of clarifications for display various aspects or faces showing the so-called Ethnography notes. Also, I include the challenge of conducting ethnographic research in more urban and contemporary spaces, an example being the case of Organizational Ethnography. To conclude, by adding a number of possible recommendations, highlighting a work framework the way I name it “Concentric Ethnography”, designed to young researchers interested in entering this field of knowledge to guide their investigations and who are not actually anthropologists.

Capability approach and life course cube applied to the migration of skilled women

Lidia Ivonne Munguía Ocampo Arlette Covarrubias (2023)

A proposal is developed to integrate Amartya Sen's Capabilities Approach and the study of life trajectories, represented in the life course cube of Bernardi et al. (2019), taking as an empirical example the couple migration the skilled women. The life curse cube allows the visualization of the interdependencies between (1) the temporality of women's life course and the historical moment where the migration process occurs, (2) the individual, social, and environmental conversion factors that provide or restrict their ability to achieve those functionings they consider of value to their lives and how they exercise their agency to achieve their well-being, and (3) the micro, meso and macro levels of interaction that together connect life domains over time from the individual environment, the social relationships and considering external societal structures.
