Prof. Michael Wesch on Subjectivities, Subjects and Digital Ethnography -
I've added this post to World University & School's wiki, Anthropology subject -
In continuing to write my ethnography about actual / virtual Harbin Hot Springs
the anthropologically complementary concept of personhood,
vis-a-vis Tom Boellstorff 's
"Coming of Age in Second Life: An Anthropologist Explores the Virtually Human"
is important in my analyses.
Questions of the virtual, of avatar-identities,
both in virtual worlds and on the ground (think Halloween or India),
come richly into conversation with questions of subjectivities, subjects, and personhood,
due to the emergence of digital technologies.
