DiLCo Methods Day

Tisztelt Kollégák!

Szeretném figyelmükbe ajánlani a DiLCo Methods Day, Methods for on/offline nexus analysis októberi 6-ai programját. A tájékoztatót alább küldöm.

This one-day event showcases recent developments in multi-sited ethnographic fieldwork across online/offline contexts and innovative solutions for the management of heterogeneous data from online (e.g. messenger threads, social media comments and videos) and offline sources (e.g. interviews, fieldwork notes).

Multi-sited fieldwork that crosses boundaries between co-present and mediated action within a community of practice is familiar from earlier approaches to digital ethnography and discourse analysis. These approaches currently gain importance, as researchers in digital discourse and mediated interaction studies turn to the `online/offline nexus´, i.e. the interdependence of on- and offline activities in everyday
communication (Blommaert 2020 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQm-knjvj4Y, Blitvich 2022 https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0378216621003908). 

Organized by DiLCo, an international research network on „Digital Language Variation in Context”, this Methods Day features presentations by researchers with intensive first-hand expertise in multi-sited research and heterogeneous data management. Each presentation will showcase a particular research technique or case study methodology, involving topics such as: designing and conducting blended fieldwork; context-sensitive strategies for on/offline data collection; software-assisted coding, categorizing, and triangulating heterogeneous data. 

*Presentations by:*
* Agnieszka Lyons & Caroline Tagg (Queen Mary University of London & Open University, UK)
* Catherine Tebaldi (University of Luxembourg)
* Florian Busch (University of Bern)
* Kristin Vold Lexander (Inland Norway University)

Discussion by:
* Camilla Vasquez (University of South Florida)

The event will take place on-site at Universität Hamburg Main Campus (Von-Melle-Park 8, Hamburg-Dammtor). Remote participation via Zoom webinar will also be provided. The event is free of charge, but registration is required for both on-site and webinar attendance.
