Trends and Periods in the Research of Mediaethnography

Mediaethnography, a research trend which is rather poorly represented in the Hungarian academic life, is in the focus of my study. Mediaethnography, on the one hand, offers the traditional methods and theories of cultural antropology as possible means to analyze new digital media and internet. On the other hand, the new fields of research and application have a considerable influence on how we think about anthropological recognition categories and methods. Therefore, through presenting the most important authors and books published in the 1980’s, the aim of this study is to examine and understand the key problems of mediathnography.
