April – December 2024 | Utrecht University (Hybrid)
We invite interested persons to join our series of six seminars in 2024, to explore the power, potential, challenges, and ethics of digital ethnography as a lens. Each event in the series is a 90-minute session (hybrid format) that focuses on a specific topic and highlights the work of 1-2 practiced and well-regarded digital ethnographers. The speakers will spend the first 30 minutes talking about their own approach or responding to pre-selected questions, which will then prompt the direction for wider discussion among participants.
