The Grad Student: Organizational Socialization of a Participant-Observer's Experience in Ethnography.
Blezek, Wendy C.
This case study documents time spent as a graduate student/participant-observer with the members of a campus organization for Jewish students. Findings are framed according to the phases of organizational socialization from anticipated differences through experiences that resulted in the acceptance of the newcomer. The study examines the socialization process in terms of acceptance in a group where the newcomer cannot become a full-fledged member without changing religion. Recommendations for further pedagogical assignments of this nature are offered. (Contains 19 references.) (Author/CR)
