Join us at the Google Hangout for the TIG on Business Anthropology this Friday, 9/30/16, 10:00 am CST.

Simply click this link,  https://hangouts.google.com/group/qnVKurm3dsP9D9NB3, and BOOM! we will be talking face-to-face.

Shane Pahl will lead a discussion on innovation and cultural change in organizations using examples from work at his company.

As most of you know, the TIG stays connected every year between the SfAA Annual Meetings by hosting a Hangout in September. In past Hangouts, we have discussed someone's ongoing work and tried to connect it to theories as a way to stay sharp theoretically, aid a colleague, and spur new ideas of research and conference presentations.

Hi everyone, letting you know about the recent launch of EthnoBorrel, a networking group for ethnographers in the Netherlands and Europe.  The website is https://ethnoborrel.eu/, and the 1st gathering will take place 12/7/17.  Please see below for details:

EthnoBorrel†to†be†launched†on†Thursday¨†7†December¨†2017

● Professional networking for ethnographers

● Monthly meetups in the Netherlands and Europe

● No membership fees

The†Netherlands¨†13†November†2017†– EthnoBorrel, a networking group for professional

ethnographers, will be launched on Thursday, 7 December, 2017. The launch will take place in

the Netherlands during the group’s first meetup.

An initiative of Erin Taylor and Gawain Lynch of Canela Consulting, EthnoBorrel aims to

strengthen members’ professional skills and advance the practice and value of ethnography in

Europe.

EthnoBorrels will be held monthly in locations in the Netherlands and other locations in Europe.

Each event will focus on a theme relevant to the professional practices of its members.

Attendees can present their work, seek advice from peers, discover opportunities, advance their

skills, and link up with broader global networks.

EthnoBorrel’s membership is open to ethnographers working in any professional role, including

designers, researchers, managers, marketing professionals, and more. Members may work in

companies, consultancies, design agencies, research institutes, think tanks, market research

companies, NGOs, or government agencies, to name a few.

EthnoBorrel works in cooperation with Anthrodesign, Ethnography Matters, and the

Ethnographic Praxis in Industry Community (EPIC).

The name “EthnoBorrel” takes its inspiration from two sources: the ethnobreakfasts run by

professional ethnographers in the U.S., and the Dutch concept of the “borrel,” an after-work

get-together featuring drinks and Dutch snacks, often by invitation and centred upon a theme.

Ethnographers who are interested in attending or hosting the event can contact Erin (details

below).
