Event Details

The Digital Ethnography in Practice Summer School offers professionals, PhD candidates and researchers an opportunity to acquire and practice a set of core digital ethnography research, analysis and dissemination skills.

Participants will attend a series of online and onsite workshops, and will plan, undertake and report on collaborative ethnography sited in Sónar Festival in Barcelona, Spain.
