Dr. Christine Hine, Professor of Sociology at the University of Surrey, one of the main references in online ethnografic research, will discuss how to move forwards as a qualitative researcher in times of social distancing. We urgently need social research to explore the lived experience of these challenging times and to gather the insights. Online interactions offer ways to supplement and replace the face-to-face fieldwork currently on hold and to engage with emerging forms of sociality. The webinar will explore the various notions of fieldwork and field sites that online spaces offer and open discussion about strategies to allow qualitative researchers to aid in interpreting what online interactions mean to people.
