“Doing Data”: Methodography in and of STS

Ingmar Lippert, Rachel Douglas-Jones

Research output: Journal Article or Conference Article in JournalJournal articleResearch


How does STS ethnography meet what it researches? Not prescriptive methodology – we were interested in methodography, describing and problematising how methods shape data. 2018 saw three research events that focused on data infrastructures and practices in participant observation and in collaborating with other actants in & around the field. With this focus, we turned back and looked at our own research practices. This meant exploring what kind of performative relations arise between STS and our topics of research and how these relations were materially and otherwise shaped.
