Digital Environments

Digital Environments
Ethnographic Perspectives across Global Online and Offline Spaces
Digital technology permeats the physical world. Social media and virtual reality,
accessed via internet capable devices-computers, smartphones, tablets and wearablesaffect nearly all aspects of social life. The contributions to this volume apply innovative
forms of ethnographic research to the digital realm. They examine the emergence of
new forms of digital life, such as political participation through comments on East
Greenlandic news blogs, the personal use of video broadcasting applications, the rise of
transnational migrant networks facilitated by social media, or the effects of Facebook,
Twitter, and Instagram on global conflicts.
