Product description


"Ethnography for the Internet" reminds us why Christine Hine remains one of the most innovative scholars of online methods. Employing case studies and a powerful conceptual framework, Hine examines how ethnographers can respond to a world in which it is near-impossible to think of any fieldsite where the internet is not a part of everyday experience.

This is an engaging and accessible account of contemporary ethnographic research. Taking the reader on a detailed journey through observation, design and analysis, Hine outlines a fertile framework for understanding consequences of the 'embedded', 'embodied' and 'everyday' Internet in our lives, and in our research practice.

The issues she raises and the advice she gives are relevant to professional anthropologists and scholar of contemporary culture too, who can no longer take the 'place' or the 'society' as given or stable ... the subjects of our ethnography constantly reshuffle themselves. Just as anthropology had to adapt-and successfully adapted-to the crisis of the 1970s and the 'multi-sited' challenge of the 1990s, so it will adapt to the new century, and Hine has given us some valuable tools to reflect on our practices and modify them to virtual and conventional settings alike.--David Eller "Anthropology Review Database "
