The Ethnography Lab at Concordia University was established to promote and explore innovative ethnographic research. Ethnography is the traditional methodology of anthropologists, based in situated participant-observation, mixed qualitative data-collection and non-reductive forms of representation. It has recently become popular in other disciplines as well, and even outside of the academy, making it a site of increasingly interdisciplinary methodological thinking.
The Lab gathers diverse ethnographic expertise from various faculties at Concordia to foster creative thinking about methodology, to enhance the possibility of new collaborative projects, and to act as a resource for university researchers and people outside of academia who wish to explore cutting-edge ethnography. She explores questions of representation and visual meaning-making with an eye to ethics and social justice. Methodologically, a focus on discourse analysis and semiotics on the micro level combined with varied empirical qualitative approaches on the macro level and building research designs are part of her repertoire.
Govind Gopakumar is an interdisciplinary scholar whose research interests are quite varied but broadly he is interested in how technological change becomes acceptable to society.

Sounds familiar: People on online dating sites are experiencing frustration because it does seem that the internet in many ways is just the same old bar scene. This is one of the findings of research by anthropologist Susan E. She is conducting an ethnographic study of online dating among women age thirty and above. She says the women on the one hand gained a sense of empowerment from their online dating experiences. But they still wanted the man to make the first move and expected him pick up the tab:.
But, at the same time, they are experiencing frustration because it does seem that the internet in many ways is just the same old bar scene. Complaints include a preponderance of men who are looking for much younger women, as well as men who misrepresent their looks, interests or marital status, or who show little interest in moving the relationship offline, she said.

You need to be logged in to avail of this functionality. Log in. Based on a critical literature review, this paper aims to make a feminist intervention to online dating studies that mainly generate gendered and stereotypical arguments. Following dominantly quantitative research methods, the existing literature insists on two arguments. First, women use online dating technologies for seeking love whereas men use them for hookup even though the majority of e-daters use such apps for hookup.
Second and in relation to the first, men prioritize physical appearance while women tend to value socio-economic status in mate selection because women, as mostly economically dependent, must think of future income potential despite that women have become more economically independent.

In traditional ethnography, the observation might be done in person that is, a real live human being spends hours or days with the respondent observing and studying his behavior or via some type of installed video camera. The advantages of traditional ethnography are well known. It is a powerful way to study and explain human behavior. However, it also has serious disadvantages: It is slow and labor-intensive. Projects often can take months to complete.
It is very expensive to personally visit people in their homes or workplaces, especially if the observational period is more than a few hours or the distance from respondent to respondent is great. Because of the intrusiveness of personal observation, many people are reluctant to participate, and this makes it difficult to recruit a representative sample of consumers. The cost of personal visits also tends to restrict the geographic areas sampled to no more than two or three major urban areas with good airport service.
One of the advantages here is that panel members are accustomed to surveys and, therefore, are more likely to participate than the average man or woman on the street. Also, since no one is visiting their home or office, a higher share of potential subjects will agree to participate, which creates a more representative sample. Beyond the sampling advantages, another benefit of this approach is that the online environment promotes a sense of anonymity and safety, which encourages a high level of self-disclosure.
Erika R. N2 – One might assume when heterosexuality is foregrounded, we might see more gender-dichotomous speech. Heterosexuality, and displays of heterosexual identity, are often founded on beliefs about gendered difference, contrast and complementarity between men and women.

DOI: This article offers a critical methodological reflection on how we undertook covert digital ethnographic research on Spanish young people and their use of online dating apps with a focus on the potential risk attached to using them. We were interested in showing how we approached the fieldwork, how we developed different research identities and how those identities were able to draw out raw data which reflected the risk attached to the online dating apps.
