Impressions from the Master Class “Participatory Digital Ethnography”

It was our pleasure to organize the Master Class Participatory Digital Ethnography together with the Vienna Visual Anthropology Lab and the Visual Studies Platform (CEU).

The public co-lecture (Nov. 9, 2021) by Darcy Alexandra (University of Bern) and Koen Leurs (Utrecht University) was a great inspiration and attracted a large and diverse audience. The succeeding closed workshop (Nov. 10, 2021) where we discussed the research and positioning papers of MA and PhD students from the University of Vienna and the Central European University together with our two guest speakers, provided a stimulating and safe environment for exchange.

Many thanks to all for participating!
