Sports Tourism In Germany
Field Study Research Paper The paper provides you with the opportunity to focus on a research topic of your choice that you can explore on our international field trip to Germany/Austria (keep in mind that you want to pick a topic that allows you to conduct field research observations, we are not using interviews for this assignment). You will have completed a proposal in Assignment 3, which will include aim, purpose and research objectives. This assignment is the final piece and involves your field research in Germany/Austria. Field research will be in the form of participant observation, informed by ethnography and include reflexive perspective. We encourage you to employ the resources you have identified as part of your annotated bibliography. I WILL SHARE THE BIBLIOGRAPHY and then you can write this final paper of this course based on that. I WILL SHARE pictures and my personal notes from this field trip in Germany where I went to watch soccer game in Augsburg and also did a stadium tour of FC BAYERN MUNICH football team.
