I'm interested in the ethnography of the Internet, particularly in the social life of information and the way people shape and are shaped by information technologies. The detailed, explanatory potential of anthropology / sociology in relation to the study of the social effects of information technology and to 'tourism studies' provides an interesting intersection of approaches / disciplines / methodologies and is my starting point. I'd also like to theorize / "theorize" anthropology, especially vis-à-vis 'cyberspace;' I'm also interested in anthropological, linguistic and philosophical questions of representation and language.
