Kritika Kultura, the international refereed journal of language, literary,
and cultural studies of the Department of English, Ateneo de Manila
University will host a workshop by Paul Michael Leonardo Atienza title "*An
Ethnography of Digital Lives: Developing Research Questions for Networked
Worlds*." The workshop is on January 15, 2018 from 1:00-3:00pm at the NGF
Conference Room, G/F de la Costa Hall, Ateneo de Manila University. The
workshop is open to the public.

*About the workshop:*

Digital media are personal, portable, participatory, and pervasive. Thus,
everyday lives will be even more mediated. Questions about media immersion,
issues of privacy, de/regulation, and changes in the way people interact
with one another are inevitable. With human lives increasingly intertwined
among machine technologies, studies about networked worlds and their global
interconnections online will require further attention. Based on visiting
scholar Paul Michael Leonardo Atienza's research trajectories and fieldwork
experiences, this workshop asks participants to consider how online lives
would generate different questions and new avenues of inquiry pertaining to
their current research projects. how many scholars use digital lives as
data? What are some methodological and ethical concerns when conducting
research about online worlds? Participants should prepare to discuss their
projects in addition to difficulties and apprehensions moving forward. This
workshop is open to all students regardless of project theme.
