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|
