Celebrating the work of DERC PhD students are two excellent resources – a video and E-Booklet for those interested in the future of digital ethnography.

“It has become a truism to think and to say that the world is becoming more digital. The number of journal articles, volumes, conferences and symposia dedicated to trying to understand the digital present and the turn towards a digital future is growing exponentially in the social sciences. In this short collection, the future of scholarship in digital ethnography, that is, the students within the Digital Ethnography Research Centre at RMIT University present their views on what the future of digital ethnography means to them”

Are we witness to a war waged against world-making practices?
We investigate how people experience the digital in everyday life, By researching from the ground up we bring fresh insight to a constantly changing world. The Digital Ethnography Research Centre DERC focuses on understanding a contemporary world where digital and mobile technologies are increasingly inextricable from the environments and relationships in which everyday life plays out.
