Ethnography on the Move: From Field to Net to Internet
Keywords:ethnography, multi-sited ethnography, virtual reality, internet
AbstractTraditional ethnographies have been based on the ideas of locality. But with the rise of globalisation processes this concept has been increasingly questioned on a theoretical level. In the last decade, US-American anthropologists called for multi-sited ethnographies. However, the practical implications for research with such a shift have not been broadly discussed yet. Now, with the internet and different kinds of virtual interaction patterns, ethnographic work faces a new challenge. This paper argues that it is necessary to focus on the implications of fieldwork in virtual settings for ethnographic practice. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0001213
