Editorial Reviews

Review

An important and, at times, provocative collection on the world of digital anthropology. The book is a must read for anyone trying to come to grips with one of anthropology's newer sub-disciplines in a world where digital interactions and engagements frame our everyday. [...] Vivid, eloquent and provocative, this is a timely edited collection with an ambitious heart, one that should be thoroughly recommended to anyone researching or teaching in the area of the digital. Horst and Miller's edited collection will have broad impact not only within anthropology but in disciplines where the digital features large. It is a book for any library. (Fiona Murphy, Dublin City University, Ireland Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale)

Highly recommended. All levels/libraries. (A. Arno, University of Hawai'i at Manoa Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries)

This remarkable volume provides a provocative survey of an emergent territory we are all coming to inhabit. Broad in coverage yet acutely attentive to the particulars, offering multiple perspectives yet elegantly integrative, and epistemologically bracing while deeply anthropological, this is a work of lasting value for experts and non-experts alike. (Don Brenneis, University of California, Santa Cruz)

Researchers and teachers alike have long been waiting for this invaluable guide to the tricky terrain of digital anthropology. Demonstrating what anthropology brings to the study of the digital and vice versa, Horst and Miller's book provides a firm launching-off point for new investigations of the remediations, remodulations, and reconfigurations associated with digital media and technology. (Paul Dourish, Professor of Informatics, University of California, Irvine)

Digital Anthropology is a beautifully curated book that reveals the importance of anthropological insight for understanding different aspects of networked society, from the spectacular to the mundane. In this formative book, Horst and Miller call attention to the ways in which digital technologies make visible our humanity. (danah boyd, Senior Researcher at Microsoft Research)

Through a wide range of detailed case studies - from digital archives through gaming to social - Digital Anthropology explores the impact of digital culture in everyday life... This book is about communication both in the anthropological and in the digital context. It attempts to demonstrate what anthropology brings to the study of the digital and vice versa. it is a welcome contribution to discussion in the field. (Anne Holappa, University of Turku Suomen Antropologi - Journal of the Finnish Anthropological Society)
