Global Technography

Ethnography in the Age of Mobility


Grant Kien

This book develops and employs a new methodology – Global Technography – to investigate wireless mobility from a sociological and cultural perspective. It illustrates that technologies are created to perform roles – to act – in everyday life, and this demands an ethnography that can track the social performativity of technology in addition to that of human beings. The book is suitable for graduate and upper level undergraduate courses in methodology, communications, and cultural work dealing with globalization and new digital communications media.
