Our workshop at the EPIC 2010 was a big success!
As part of the EPIC 2010 in Tokyo, we hosted a workshop entitled “Lost in translation? How to get the most out of cross-cultural ethnographic research” on August 31st.
Passion for cross-cultural ethnography brought more than twenty people from home and abroad in a hot summer morning at International Design Liaison Center in Roppongi. In a densely-packed three hour program, we conducted mock observations of office workers, discussed issues unique to cross-cultural situation, and together discovered possible operation guidelines for future cross-cultural researches. All participants brought their unique international experiences, which made our discussions even more fruitful and inspiring. We thank all the participants who picked our workshop out of the equally inviting twelve EPIC workshops and contributed their unique perspectives and passion.
