The Studio for Ethnographic Design at the University of California, San Diego, hosted the first in a series of workshops among members of CoLED. The workshop was held on April 3rd and 4th, 2015, with a series of collaborative and design-based exercises to stimulate discussion about the current state of ethnography, in the field, at the academy, and in the various communities shaped by ethnographic projects.

This workshop was the first of a series of events, to be hosted at various UC campuses, to develop a framework, set of concerns, and strategies that will be further explored at a culminating public conference in Fall 2016. The second CoLED workshop is scheduled to be hosted at the University of California, Irvine on October 23rd and 24th, 2015.

Thank you to all the participants, faculty, postdocs and graduate students, who made the UCSD workshop such an exciting event!
