Tracking the Therapeutic (2015-2019)

Doing Ethnography

TRACKTHERA is a multi-sited ethnography focusing on subjective engagement with therapeutic technologies in a range of national and transnational sites. We have chosen this methodology because it is particularly well-suited to studying the globally circulating phenomenon of therapeutic technologies, and ways in which they are played out and domesticated in diverse national and transnational contexts. As nearly all case studies in this project make use of Internet and social media as research materials, we also draw methodological insights from virtual ethnography.
