This open discussion on the various tools, methods, and techniques of digital ethnography invites participants to learn from each other how to go about studying digitally mediated interactions and behaviour on and with digital platforms. The discussion leaders will bring a range of concrete examples from their own work on how to go about using various methods. Session participants with experiences, ideas, and questions will be encouraged to share these with the group, especially as there is no one single approach to how one undertakes a study using digital ethnographic approaches.
About the Series (OxDeg)
This seminar series, created by the Oxford Digital Ethnography Group, gathers leading scholars and practitioners to reflect on how ethnography is adapting to the study of heavily-mediated worlds. The overarching theme is digital ethnography, broadly conceived. The group aims to extend inter-disciplinary academic research and collaboration among scholars at Oxford University interested in understanding rich, qualitative approaches to researching behaviour online. It will encompass a variety of research interests within this field, including digital visual anthropology as well as a variety of qualitative, ethnographic methodologies appropriate to the study of the digital environment.
