Abstract

As the digital becomes increasingly entwined within everyday life, ethnography’s value as a key methodological and analytical approach to understand the ways in which digital media technologies are changing how we live, work, and play has increased (Pink et al. 2016; Hine 2015). Bringing together scholars from a variety of disciplines including anthropology, sociology, media, communication, and cultural studies, the Companion reflects upon and seeks to assess the past, present, and future of digital ethnography. Through a series of key rubrics—Debating Digital Ethnography; Relationships; Visibility and Voice; Place and Co-presence; Play; Arts; Infrastructures; Politics; and Design—The Routledge Companion to Digital Ethnography considers the interdisciplinary role of digital ethnography as we move into progressively more complex digital entanglements within the everyday.
