Ethnographic practice
  • ‘Knowledge, however interesting, can never be disinterested’ (Acciaioli, 1981, p. 23).
  • Participant observation is the central and innovative method of anthropology. It provides the research with grounded close observation of individual and collective social action within a cultural context.

Multicultural Canada
  • Digital democratisation
  • Globalisation
  • Circulation (multiculturalisms) and local productions - nationalisms
  • Knowledge/power - abundant, tacit, elided, and secret
  • Objects of Knowledge? Community, nation, data

  • Internet is ‘underdetermined’ because it doesn’t direct users into clear paths and encourages ‘social construction and cultural creation… it remains an invitation to a new imaginary.’
