Abstract: From an ethnography and critical youth studies perspective, how do we study identities, especially those of young people? This interactive session has two objectives. The first is to answer this question of how to study identities ethnographically. When it comes to young people, I will argue, one of the best ways to study identities is through what I call “hanging out methodology,” a particular kind of critical ethnography. Here, language is salient, where identities are formed and performed in and through language. Once you have your data collected, the second objective of the session is to introduce you to a system(at)ic way of how to publish an article every twelve weeks. This second part of this session can be of interest to both students and faculty. So, bring your data to the session and let us practically walk through how to turn an article out of it in twelve weeks. WORD!
