About Us

The Ethnography Atelier podcast discusses research methods with accomplished qualitative researchers. We talk to guests about their experiences of conducting research in and around organizations, the challenges they faced and the understandings they gained. The podcast is an initiative of the Ethnography Atelier at emlyon business school which promotes ethnographic and other qualitative research. For more information please visit our website at www.ethnographyatelier.org

Episode 6 - Sarah Sachs: Studying Algorithms Ethnographically

In this conversation with Dr Sarah Sachs, we explored the challenges involved in studying algorithms at work. Sarah’s research examines how data analytic technologies are reconfiguring work and organizations. Her dissertation “The Algorithm at Work: The Reconfiguration of Work and Expertise in the Making of Similarity in Art Data” is an ethnography of team practice in the DNArt project. In the episode, we talked about the work involved in making algorithms work, the strengths and limits of studying how organizations and people work with and around new technologies, and the challenges of sampling and gaining access to such phenomena in light of the growing interest around machine learning and AI.

Episode 5 - Gretta Corporaal: Studying Online and Offline Work

In this episode, we sat with Dr Gretta Corporaal from the Oxford Internet Institute to talk about the challenges of studying work ethnographically. Gretta has researched cross-boundary collaboration and, more recently, how some of the world’s largest corporations adopt online platforms to hire and manage specialists and the work involved in designing these platforms. During our chat, Gretta reflected on some tactics to study work which today is increasingly happening online and geographically distributed, and the importance of in-depth qualitative research on digital technologies and AI in and around organizations to offer more nuanced views on the changing nature of work in the digital gig economy.

Episode 4 - Nevena Radoynovska: Vulnerable Populations

This fourth episode of the podcast examines the challenges of researching vulnerable populations. We are joined in this conversation by our colleague Dr Nevena Radoynovska (emlyon business school) who has conducted research on social entrepreneurship based on fieldwork in the French quartiers prioritaires — government-designated disadvantaged neighborhoods with disproportionally high rates of unemployment, poverty and social exclusion. In the episode, Nevena reflected on this recent study, its practicalities, and her effort to tell the stories of informants without re-enforcing stereotypes while also respecting their particularities.

Episode 3 – Aruna Ranganathan: Full-Cycle Approach

In the third episode of the podcast, we talk with Professor Aruna Ranganathan (Stanford Graduate School of Business) about her experience using a full-cycle approach to mixed methods. This approach starts with the observation of naturally-occurring phenomena supported by inductive techniques and then moves to theory-testing with the use of quantitative datasets and experiments. Although mixing different methods is a promising strategy enabling the researcher to interrogate the phenomena of interest from multiple angles, it is also somewhat challenging and still relatively rare. In our conversation, Aruna reflected about her use of the full-cycle approach, its main strengths and weakness, and shared tips on how to cross the qualitative/quantitative divide in empirical research.

Episode 2 - Susan Silbey: Team Ethnography

We are joined by Professor Susan Silbey from M.I.T in our second episode which explores a team approach to ethnography. Ethnography is a qualitative approach originated in anthropology that is widely used today in many academic areas and also applied research. It is heavily grounded in the study of naturally occurring phenomena, usually via observation. The goal is to understand and describe social processes from the perspective of the people studied by being immersed in their reality. While traditionally associated with a single researcher, many benefits may come from a team approach. In our conversation, Susan elaborates on the benefits of a team approach to ethnography, the reasons which lead her to adopt it in a multi-year study of the implementation of safety regulations in scientific labs, and the lessons she learned from this experience.

Episode 1 - Santi Furnari: Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)

In this first episode of the podcast, we talk with Associate Professor Santi Furnari from Cass Business School about his experience using fuzzy-set/ Qualitative Comparative Analysis (fs/QCA). Qualitative Comparative Analysis was originally developed by Charles Ragin and represents a technique to determine which logical conclusions a dataset supports. The approach attempts to bridge qualitative and quantitative traditions by combining the complexity of qualitative data with the analytical precision of quantitative techniques to analyze cross-case patterns. It is particularly suitable to address “If … then” hypotheses and takes into account complex causal structures based on Boolean algebra. In our conversation, Santi tells us about the origins of this approach, how he uses it in his research on organizational configurations and business models, and his general insights on its benefits and challenges.
