what is it? Addressing broad issue of methodologies in cultural 
research, this masterclass will be of interest to postgraduates and 
early career researchers working across a variety of areas including 
cultural studies, media anthropology and sociology, sociology and 
anthropology of music and art, cultural and media policy studies, 
media and communication studies, and television studies. The 
masterclass will focus on the use of ethnography in the study of 
cultural/media production and cultural/media organisations, but it 
will interest all those using ethnography in their work. Among the 
themes to be addressed are genre, aesthetics, authorship, value and 
history/temporalities. The masterclass will involve an interactive 
lecture, and discussion of Prof. Born's work, which participants will 
be asked to read prior to the masterclass. In the afternoon three 
participants will be selected to give 15 minute summaries of a paper 
on their research, and Prof. Born and the participants will give 
feedback on this work, with particular attention to its 
methodological framing. 

how much does it cost? The masterclasses are free of charge to 
successful applicants, and include lunch and morning/afternoon teas. 
Applications from PGs & ECRS who do not live in Brisbane, Sydney or 
Melbourne are strongly encouraged: interstate participants' travel 
and accommodation will be covered by the CRN.

how do I apply?  Applications to participate in the masterclass are 
due by 20 June 2006.  We require you to complete an application form 
(downloadable from http://www.uq.edu.au/crn/born/masterclass.html), 
and submit a brief CV (no more than 2 pages). The application form
