Event Title:

Doing Digital Ethnography

Event Description:

“The significance of the digital world and online technologies have come into focus in the wake of the pandemic. As they transform many facets of social life—work, play, finance, relationships—online spaces also invite a rethinking of social science methodologies and theories. This panel examines the craft of digital ethnography, or participant observation of online social spaces. We consider the promises and challenges of fieldwork in online social life, hybrid combinations of data in-real-life and online, and the future and limitations of participant observation in an increasingly digitized world.”
