Exploring Digital Ethnography through Embodied Perspective, Role-Playing and Community Participation and Design. Introduction

Natalie Underberg-Goode

Abstract


This special issue of Visual Ethnography explores the idea of digital ethnography in terms of community participation and design and perspective and role-playing in digital media. This introduction briefly outlines the place of perspective and roleplaying in expressing cultural heritage and cultural experience, and provides an overview of insights and techniques from the fields of participatory research and design. An introduction to the articles in the special issue follows, focusing on the diverse ways in which they offer practical and reflective perspectives on community participation, collaboration, and perspective in projects involving living cultural heritage, as well as the negotiation of space between researcher, subject matter, and the medium(s) through which lived experience is conveyed.
