Ethnogr@phers ought to be multi-sited and virtual-spaced at the same time. But how can we do this? From 5-7th November, we will discuss this issue in our panel at the “Networked Urban Mobilities” Conference in Copenhagen focusing on a range of online-offline challenges imposed upon current anthropological methodology (here is our original call).
If you are doing ethnogr@phy in hyper_mobile fields and want to address and discuss methodological challenges with us, remember our hashtag #hypermobile and follow us on Twitter @TheFieldnote. Our panel consists of three sessions (click on the hashtag to read the abstract of the presenter).

P.S.: TRANSFORMATIONS is also on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/engaginganthropology.
TRANSFORMATIONS is a medium through which dedicated and critical anthropologists put their thoughts, experiences and research insights up for discussion using a full range of digital opportunities including text, images, audio and video. We connect our research with themes of a broad public relevance, while also making the personal and often emotional act of research in social and cultural anthropology accessible to a wider audience. We aim for a creative, rich and accessible style of writing that is easy to understand, so that we can put people and their life-stories into the spotlight.
