Mini-ethnographies are a series of short-term ethnographic projects, often taken on-foot, that emerge from happenstance and respond to a specific event, place, or community. They are predominantly collaborations with a fellow researcher to ensure accuracy and to engage in dialogue. Mini-ethnographies prioritize visual and other sensory observations, and rather than following traditional ethnographic investigations that involve in-depth interviews with community members, they are conversations between collaborators. Mini-ethnographies are stand alone media projects that capture contemporary issues and realities.
