About this product
- DescriptionThe internet has become embedded into our daily lives, longer an esoteric phemen, but instead an unremarkable way of carrying out our interactions with one ather. Online and offline are interwoven in everyday experience. Using the internet has become accepted as a way of being present in the world, rather than a means of accessing some discrete virtual domain. Ethgraphers of these contemporary Internet-infused societies consequently find themselves facing serious methodological dilemmas: where should they go, what should they do there and how can they acquire robust kwledge about what people do in, through and with the internet? This book presents an overview of the challenges faced by ethgraphers who wish to understand activities that involve the internet. Suitable for both new and experienced ethgraphers, it explores both methodological principles and practical strategies for coming to terms with the definition of field sites, the connections between online and offline and the changing nature of embodied experience. Examples are drawn from a wide range of settings, including ethgraphies of scientific institutions, television, social media and locally based gift-giving networks.
