Mosi-oa-Tunya / Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe: Subjectivities, Subjects, Identity, Anthropology, Digital Technologies

‎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.
