Doing ethnography in a digital-material world
The Digital Ethnography Summer School offers PhD candidates and researchers an opportunity to learn a set of core digital ethnography research, analysis and dissemination skills. This will be gained through first hand training in the theory and practice of digital ethnography. Participants will attend a series of workshops, and will plan, undertake and report on collaborative mini-projects using a range of digital technologies and mobile media, with DERC researchers and external partners in Melbourne, Australia.
Along with developing their digital ethnographic fieldwork skills, summer school participants will work towards a finished group ethnography to be considered for publication in a collection edited by DERC.
The course is led by DERC researchers and tutors will include: Sarah Pink; Larissa Hjorth; Heather Horst; John Postill; Shanti Sumartojo; Edgar Gómez Cruz; and Bianca Vallentine (Summer School Manager).
Key reading for the course includes: Digital Ethnography: Principles and Practice Authors: Sarah Pink, Heather Horst, John Postill, Larissa Hjorth, Tania Lewis and Jo Tacchi. (2016) Los Angeles: Sage.
