Call for participants: digital live ethnography at Undisciplining

Mark Carrigan and Pat Thomson would like to invite you to take part in live methods research, exploring the lived reality of academic conferences through live blogging. We are hoping to recruit 10-15 participants to reflect on Undisciplining each day in an open-ended and ad hoc way, with the intention of producing a rich array of real time reflections on the event. There will be an initial training session and daily debrief for participants. Everyone will be invited to jointly author a journal article reflecting on the project and analysing its findings.

If you have registered for the conference and would like to take part, please contact Mark and Pat using the form below:
