Ethnography in and around an Algorithm
|Title:||Ethnography in and around an Algorithm||Authors:||Kavanagh, Donncha; McGarraghy, Sean; Kelly, Séamas||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7348||Date:||4-Jul-2015||Online since:||2016-01-07T13:32:18Z||Abstract:||If 'headwork' is "the conceptual work that informs ethnographic fieldwork and its various representational practices", then this paper is a piece of headwork about what an ethnography in (or around, or of) an algorithm might entail. We begin by situating this question in ethnography’s long tradition of philosophical reflection on method and representation. This reflection has been deep and cutting, and some would argue that it has evacuated ethnography of its essence, identify and value.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Keywords:||Ethnography; Algorithms||Other versions:||http://www.egosnet.org/2015_athens/general_theme||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||30th EGOS Colloquium: Sub-theme 15: (SWG) Creativity, Reflexivity and Responsibility in Organizational Ethnography, Athens, Greece, 3 - 5 July 2015||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
