Divining a digital future : mess and mythology in ubiquitous computing by Paul Dourish( )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ubiquitous computing (or ubicomp) is the label for a "third wave" of computing technologies. Following the eras of the mainframe computer and the desktop PC, ubicomp is characterized by small and powerful computing devices that are worn, carried, or embedded in the world around us. Computer scientist Paul Dourish and cultural anthropologist Genevieve Bell explore the vision that has driven the ubiquitous computing research program and the contemporary practices that have emerged--both the motivating mythology and the everyday messiness of lived experience
The Routledge companion to digital ethnography by Larissa Hjorth( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the increase of digital and networked media in everyday life, researchers have increasingly turned their gaze to the symbolic and cultural elements of technologies. From studying online game communities, locative and social media to YouTube and mobile media, ethnographic approaches to digital and networked media have helped to elucidate the dynamic cultural and social dimensions of media practice. This 'Companion' provides an authoritative, up-to-date, intellectually broad, and conceptually cutting-edge guide to this emergent and diverse area
Data, now bigger and better! by Tom Boellstorff( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Data is too big to be left to the data analysts! Here, Prickly Paradigm brings together five researchers whose work is deeply informed by anthropology, understood as more than a basket of ethnographic methods like participant observation and interviewing. The value of anthropology lies also in its conceptual frameworks, frameworks that are comparative as well as field-based. Kinship! Gifts! Everything old is new when the anthropological archive washes over 'big data'. Bringing together anthropology's classic debates and contemporary interventions, this book counters the future-oriented hype and speculation so characteristic of discussions regarding big data. By drawing as well on long experience in industry contexts, the contributors provide analytical provocations that can help reframe what may prove to be some of the most important shifts in technology and society in the first half of the twenty-first century"--Back cover
Telling stories out of school : remembering the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, 1879-1918 by Genevieve Bell( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation remembers the Carlisle Indian Industrial School--the flagship of the American Assimilation era's education program. From 1879 to 1918, the United States government operated the Carlisle Indian Industrial School at the military barracks in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. It was the first government-funded, co-educational, secular, non-reservation Indian School to be established, and its design became the template for at least twenty-five additional non-reservation boarding schools during the Assimilation era, 1880-1924. This dissertation revisits the Carlisle Indian Industrial School with three interrelated goals: (i) to understand how the school functioned as a site at which State policies were articulated and employed; (ii) to examine the ways in which those State policies shaped student experiences of school; and (iii) to recall the impact that Carlisle had upon individual student lives after school. Some 8,500 students from at least seventy-five Native American Nations spent time at Carlisle, learning basic academic skills as well as receiving vocational training. These students were not only learning how to read, write and have a trade, they were also learning how to be Indian. That these lessons were not always voluntary, that their reception was uneven, and that their content shifted over time in no way diminishes their impact. It is these lessons about identity that this dissertation explores
