This course introduces ethnographic approaches to digital media and culture to discuss how media-related spaces and practices take part in the shaping and reshaping of subjectivities, everyday lives, socialities, and political horizons. By drawing on ethnographies of digital media spaces, practices, and ecologies, this course addresses significant themes and debates around our contemporary media spheres and cultures, including  practices and performances of self; place, locality, and mobility; networks and publics; and, participation, collectivity, and activism. A special emphasis will be put on the ways the individual, private, and emotional domains of the everyday and the collective, public, and political spheres intertwine and take shape through each other. The course further introduces ways of using digital media spaces and technologies as part of ethnographic research. This is a project-based course that aims to create collaborative ethnographic research project(s) about digital media and culture. Project(s) will be carried out during the entire semester through in-class exercises, discussions, and feedbacks. Processes and outcomes of the project(s) will be supported and disseminated by a course blog.
