We have decided to build this research website after reading existing methodological writing on conducting ethnographic research online, and the importance of maintaining transparency. We hope this site will provide a good way for participants and fellow researchers to learn about this project as it develops. We will be updating this news feed with what we are working on as we go along, and we will be posting some findings that might be of interest on the blog. For anyone keen to read more about conducting ethnographic research online, we highly recommend Christine Hine (2015) 'Ethnography for the Internet: Embedded, embodied and everyday'; Tom Boellstorff (2008) 'Coming of Age in Second Life: An anthropologist explores the virtually human'; Gabriella Coleman (2010), ‘Ethnographic Approaches to Digital Media'; Elisabetta Costa (2016) 'Social Media in Southeast Turkey'. You can find a detailed introduction to the project by following the project tab at the top of this page. Please also feel free to contact us with any questions, using the link above.
