Course contents

Ethnography of the professions

          The study of professions require a field research. Professional contexts are to be studied according to a methodology ethnographic and anthropological because each group is a real professional tribes and as such should be studied.

          The myth of professional expertise has made us forget that in addition to technical and operational knowledge, serving only to learn a trade, there are other dimensions of which training is not concerned. These dimensions apply to registers of communication, awareness of the role and character. They forget that each of us is a person following a profession and our communicative registers, the vision of our role and personal characteristics determine the professional services.
