Ethnographer promotes knowledge exchange between residents of Michigan's Upper Peninsula (UP) and scientists studying the history of the UP. Residents and scientists can discuss ethnographic themes and upload interviews about UP's recent cultural history. The site is organized by topics described by scientists. Members of Ethnographer (which can be you) can discuss the topic with scientists and fellow residents in the topic's discussions. Both scientists and residents can also contribute historical accounts or stories about the topic. Stories include interviews and photographs. The stories can be created on this website or uploaded from an Android phone using the Ethnographer app. Create an account, login and contribute UP history.
The ethnographer Android app promotes the collection of interviews and photographs while in the field. Using the app you can record interviews in the field with fellow residents describing UP's recent history and at the same time take photos of historical sites. You can save the interviews and photographs as stories and later upload the stories to this website.Download The App Now!
