Virtual Ethnography

«`This book reflects scholarly dedication to enlarging the discussion on the nature and role of the internet, and provides insight into how ethnographic methodologies can be adapted creatively to research into modern electronic forms of communication. A glossary of internet terms adds to the usefulness of this well-referenced treaties′ - International Journal of Market Research

`There is so much to praise in this excellent book: its sensitivity to the culture, its alertness to the most demanding scholarly standards, its innovative analysis of the World Wide Web and its elegant, lively presentation. Students and researchers of the emerging culture should not be without it!′ - Sean Cubitt, Liverpool John Moores University

Cutting though the exaggerated and fanciful beliefs about the new possibilities of `net life', Hine produces a distinctive understanding of the significance of the Internet and addresses such questions as: what challenges do the new technologies of communication pose for research methods? Does the Internet force us to rethink traditional categories of `culture' and `society'?



In this compelling and thoughtful book, Hine shows that the Internet is both a site for cultural formations and a cultural artefact which is shaped by people's understandings and expectations. Les mer

Cutting though the exaggerated and fanciful beliefs about the new possibilities of `net life', Hine produces a distinctive understanding of the significance of the Internet and addresses such questions as: what challenges do the new technologies of communication pose for research methods? Does the Internet force us to rethink traditional categories of `culture' and `society'?



In this compelling and thoughtful book, Hine shows that the Internet is both a site for cultural formations and a cultural artefact which is shaped by people's understandings and expectations. The Internet requires a new form of ethnography. The author considers the shape of this new ethnography and guides readers through its application in multiple settings.

Hanna Sofia – 18.10.2007

– What do you think of when you hear the word "ethnography"? Probably studies of foreign cultures, but in this book Hines studies Internet, a culture which does not exist on a fixed place. The book is both a theoretical overview on online studies and ethnographies as well as a case study. The case study is about the trial against the nanny Louise Woodward, who was accused of murdering a child in the US when she was an au pair. In the book, we are able to follow some internet communities that were engaged in Woodward's case. I recommend this book for people who are intersted in Science and Technology Studies, internet and ethnography. It can also be used as a book for more advanced students.
