Description/Abstract

We will discuss the experience of conducting fieldwork research on styles of and words used for windows in eastern China. We challenge the oftenstated conventional wisdom that research involving undergraduates needs to be constrained and mapped out in advance, due to limitations in their experience and skill sets. We argue instead that creativity in research involving undergraduates is best served by trusting them to be responsible and capable in furthering research.
