Véronique Fortin is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Law at the Université de Sherbrooke. She has a Ph.D. in Criminology, Law and Society from the University of California, Irvine. Her current research interests include the criminalization and punishment of marginalized communities, such as people experiencing homelessness, people living with mental illnesses and welfare recipients. She favours an empirical approach, most often ethnographic, for her research.
Title: Ethnography and the law: what they can bring to one another
In this theoretical and methodological workshop, I draw on concrete examples from personal experiences (and mistakes!) in my research on the judicialization of protesters and people experiencing homelessness, to explore what ethnography and law can bring to one another. After having briefly described what ethnography is in general, I will talk about the various dimensions of legal ethnographic research and what ethnography can contribute to the study of law. Conversely, I will also explore the ways that legal training can contribute to ethnographic research.
