Chacun appelle idées claires celles qui sont au même degré de confusion que les siennes propres

A few words from Proust to return humbly to the keyboard and the screen and to the wires and waves after a wonderful summer.

The next few weeks will bring all kinds of announcements for events and research opportunities, but also some reflections on my current topic, namely the importance of time in pursuing my fieldwork. In the course of studying how new information technologies are being adopted and adapted in women’s studies, I’ve come to pay more and more attention to ‘time’, as a motif in the work of scholars in relation to these technologies and in the construction of my ‘field’. I’ll be trying to clarify and communicate about this topic as I enter the final phase of fieldwork for this project.

  1. hola.. would love to hear more about your time research as it unfolds. i just happened across your blog through searching for ‘online ethnography’… . funny place, this internet.

  2. Very funny place… Ron Burnett (whom I believe is still at Emily Carr) was director of GPC at McGill when I was a student there. More on time is forthcoming in the next couple of weeks. Do stay tuned and I will also keep taking a look at your ideas about slowing things down.
