    Congratulations to Gabrielle Oliveira, whose book, Motherhood across Borders: Immigrants and Their Children in Mexico and New York, was selected as the Outstanding Ethnography in Education Book Award winner. Dr. Oliveira will speak at the Ethnography in Education Research Forum. Thus, ethnography may be defined as both a qualitative research process or method (one conducts an ethnography) and product (the outcome of this process is an ethnography) whose aim is cultural interpretation. The ethnographer goes beyond reporting events and details of experience. This book tells a particular set of stories about that. Ethnography is often referred to as “culture writing,” and it refers to a type of documentation often employed by Anthropologists in their field work. This genre of writing uses detailed first-hand written descriptions of a culture based on first-hand research in the field. A very common form is a book written by the person.
