Discussion on the definition of media anthropology
Media Anthropology Network mailing list
CyberAnthropology recognizes that the new 'virtual' communities are no
longer defined by geographic or even semiotic (ethnic/religious/linguistic)
boundaries. Instead, communities are being constructed in cyberspace on the
basis of common affiliative interests, transcending boundaries of class,
nation, race, gender, and language. Even as old systems of social
organization are imploding, the various 'virtual communities' are growing.
(cf. Howard Rheingold.) This parallels the way in which on the global scene
civil society is reclaiming social space from both the public and private
sectors - how the NGO (nongovernmental organization) is continuing to check
the power of the nation-state and the multinational corporation.
CyberAnthropology - Anthropology of CyberCulture
This article investigates the historical development, the major theories and the ethnographic domains of an anthropology of cyberculture. In doing so, the authors use Arturo Escobar's influential paper on cyberanthropology, written in 1994, and connects potential research questions posed in this text with research projects recently conducted at the Viennese Department of Cultural and Social Anthropology.
Visual anthropology in the digital mirror: Computer-assisted visual anthropology
Fischer Michael D. and David Zeitlyn
We discuss some of the ways that visual materials have been used in anthropology and how digital technology affect our approaches in some ways more than others. Rather than using hypertext and multimedia as analytic endpoints we introduce an approach which hypertext facilitates, conceived as a hierarchical set of layers at differing levels of abstraction with the analytic article or book at one end, furthest from the field experiences on which it is based.
