In this lecture, Dr. Denes aims to offer an introduction to the anthropological concepts and frameworks that are useful for researching and understanding intangible culture. The key conceptual and methodological approaches consist of participant observation and self-reflexivity, building rapport, understanding context, identifying key informants and undertaking interviews, listening for diverse local voices and points of view, ethnography, and rapid research tools, which are socio-cultural mapping, community histories, economic and social calendars, and life stories.
