Experts in: Ethnography
My research examines how organizations are produced in everyday communication. More specifically, using ethnographic methods, I study how secular and religious/spiritual non-governmental organizations are enacted in interactions between various actors to advance human and non-human well-being.
My research interests have to do mainly with the everyday practices of teenagers and young adults and information and communication technologies (ICTs). More specifically, I am interested in meaningful practices and forms of attachment in connection with these technologies, and with their place and role in identity construction. More recently, I have been studying how these daily practices, including the mobilization of social networks, can be used for collective action. Methodologically, I emphasize ethnographic approaches and so-called “creative” approaches, combined with a specific interest in methodological questions relating to field research practices (research process, reflexivity, researcher-subject relationship, ethics, etc.).
