Week Six – Overview

Direction change. This week has introduced all things ethnography related.

It has been a heavy week in terms of teasing out  ideas on what kind of community to look at, how to approach the task and how to represent the ethnographic findings.

Tumblog Week Six postings reflect these tentative steps toward deciphering between community and subculture, what community could be and / or is.  I have felt a little torn about this distinction. I think that the Subculture post has forced me to give time to considering that the location / source hosting a community in itself could contribute to how participants form interactions and subsequently identification with/in the community.

The idea of conducting an ethnographic study with non-human subjects is intriguing and an area that is sure to contribute to my bedside locker collection of the future!

The Tumblog is serving a clearer purpose for me these days. Not only as a visual / textual log of what I thought at a particular moment in time  but is pushing my process of thinking, of connecting wider. I have begun to think of my Tumblog as a tram navigating unknown territory, expanding the route system along the way, charting a map of exploration from the basic [Grid  A] to the downright weighty! [Grid B!] It might feel like it’s a long way from Bury to Edge Lane but the engine is picking up speed and the journey enjoyable.
