The Ohio Field Schools Course: CS5189-S (offered in spring semester, cross-listed with English): provides an introduction to ethnographic field methods (participant-observation, writing field notes, photographic documentation, audio interviewing), archiving, and the public exhibition of research for both undergraduates and graduate students. Students will contribute to a team-based, immersive research project designed to document the ways that diverse communities express and preserve a sense of place in the face of economic, environmental and cultural change. The semester-long, experientially-based course will consist of three parts:
Introduction to fieldwork (on OSU campus in Columbus)
A one-week field experience in Scioto County during spring break (where students will reside together on-site)
Accessioning, digital gallery preparation, and reflection (on OSU campus in Columbus)
Thus, throughout the semester, students will practice all of the skills necessary to construct a permanent record of local expressive culture that will be accessible to future researchers and community members. Participation in all parts of the course is required.  Questions about the course can be sent to Cristina Benedetti at benedetti.6@buckeyemail.osu.edu.
