  9. 9. Public Ethnography Public sociology’s most general purpose is to make the discipline more useful socially, and public ethnography is particularly suited to achieve this purpose.! ! Operationally, public ethnography must be relevant to and accepted by the lay public.! ! public ethnography needs to be topic-driven, shedding sociological light—and if possible new information— on topics relevant to the public. Gans H J. Public Ethnography; Ethnography as Public Sociology. Qualitative Sociology. 2010; 33: 97-104. In a peopled ethnography the text is neither descriptive narrative nor conceptual theory; rather, the understanding of the setting and its theoretical implications are grounded in a set of detailed vignettes, based on field notes, interview extracts, and the texts that group members produce. The detailed account, coupled with the ability of the reader to generalize from the setting, is at the heart of this methodological perspective. Fine G A. Towards a Peopled Ethnography: Developing Theory from Group Life. Ethnography. 2003; 4: 41-60
