Further reflections on ‘being in a digital age’: remember the “Virtual Society?”

Virtual Society? ESRC programme

I was trying to think about the lineage of an ESRC programme on ‘digital’ stuff and was prompted to remember the Oxford-led (by Steve Woolgar) ESRC programme: “The Virtual Society?” and accompanying publications.

It is probably worth revisiting, however out-of-date it might feel, because I suspect there are some questions posed there to follow-up. Or at least modes of framing issues that maybe of interest…

Some good people were involved in that programme, including Christine HineSonia Livingstone, Celia Lury and Sally Wyatt (amongst others). I hope that the interest in qualitative work within the ESRC’s scoping call will take into account good work like theirs, and Daniel Miller’s.
