Pressestimmen

"[W]e can hope that young scholars and established ones, friends and critics of ethnography alike, will read this book, take it seriously, and carry it with them in whatever world they study and inhabit."--Jack David Eller, Anthropology Review "In this useful volume, the coauthors, each of whom is an accomplished virtual world ethnographer, pretty much put to rest threshold questions that might be raised about whether virtual worlds and online cultures can be proper objects of anthropological research... [T]he authors provide as much insight and instructive commentary about traditional ethnography as they do about the ethnography of virtual worlds."--Choice "Ethnography and Virtual Worlds provides invaluable advice, tips, guidelines, principles, and further resources to aid researchers through every stage of a participant observation virtual worlds research project, from choosing the online field site to writing and publishing the results."--John F. Barber, Leonardo Reviews "[The authors] have produced a very interesting and timely contribution; clearly written, with easy-to-follow case studies... Ethnography and Virtual Worlds will be useful to any graduate student in social sciences, but as well in humanities, media and Cultural Studies or in any interdisciplinary approach focused on virtual worlds. It is not an introduction to ethnography as such, rather a helpful guide to help scholars already familiar with ethnography and related methodologies to adapt their approaches to cases using the Internet and interactive virtual worlds."--Yves Laberge, LSE Review of Books "I would ... enthusiastically recommend this book to people interested in virtual world and other digital media ethnography--not just as a handbook of method--but as a compilation of the collective wisdom of these four very experienced and highly respected ethnographers--and as a thoroughly good read."--Jeni Paay, Computer Supported Cooperative Work "Either at the chapter level or as a whole, Ethnography and Virtual Worlds provides invaluable advice, tips, guide-lines, principles and further resources to aid researchers through every stage of a participant observation virtual worlds research project, from choosing the online field site to writing and publishing the results."--John F. Barber, Leonardo

Strong on Traditional Methods But Weak on Virtual Ethnography 2. Juni 2014
Von Jonathan Cook - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Ethnography and Virtual Worlds addresses an important gap in anthropological research methods, but does so weakly. While this book is sold as a handbook of method in the ethnography of online experience, most of the book merely repeats traditional advice to beginning ethnographers. Very little discussion is devoted to the special challenges and opportunities of virtual worlds, and the way that new media challenge old ethnographic presumptions about the relationships between researchers, subjects of research, and the audience to whom findings are presented. The authors seem firmly rooted in the conventions of traditional academic culture. It's ironic that, as ethnographers, they would have difficulty seeing beyond those limitations. There is little here in the way of useful advice for people seeking innovative ways to create ethnographic approaches that embrace the liminal flexibility inherent to virtual worlds. Also missing is a consideration of the development of ritual dynamics in online environments. Ethnography and Virtual Worlds is written well, as far as it goes. It simply doesn't go very far.

excellent methods text 14. Februar 2013
Von Colleen E. Boyd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Boellstorff is one of my favorite ethnographers. Although this book is geared towards virtual ethnography, it is also quite helpful for all forms of ethnography. I love it.
