Ethnographers study people by observing their lives where and as they unfold. But questions of being there and present are made more complicated and interesting with digital life and the role of information and communication technologies and media in work, play, and in all aspects of life. Digital ethnography is a burgeoning field of research, and the goal of the Digital Ethnography Working Group is to develop a deeper understanding of how people live in this digital era and uncover the most innovative methods to study digital communication, information, and media from an ethnographic standpoint. To establish SC&I at the forefront of digital ethnography, this working group provides outstanding support, training, and visibility to faculty and graduate students interested in this evolving research area.
