Promotional Information

Digital Methods is not a methods book in the traditional sense of the genre, though one will learn a great deal about 'virtual methods' from reading it. It's an historical, epistemological, and ontological treatise on the nature of the Internet and the purpose of Internet research. Rogers argues that the 'natively digital' can serve as a (complicated) window into the broader social, cultural, and political worlds we all inhabit. His argument is a compelling one that will change the way we think about the 'virtual,' the 'real,' and what each can tell us about the other. -- Michael X. Delli Carpini, Dean, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania This is a remarkable book that fills a gaping hole on questions of method. Over the years, Richard Rogers has contributed to questions of method and research in digital domains. This is his best yet. -- Saskia Sassen, Columbia University; author of Digital Formations

Reviews

(T)his is an important and groundbreaking book for several reasons. Rogers' overarching argument (...) is integral for a broader conceptualization of what digital social research should attempt to achieve. Rogers' research provides a much-needed perspective that goes beyond the often UK/US-centric focus that digital scholarship published in English provides. The realization I was left with after reading the book, above all, was that of the sheer scope and size of what lies before digital social researchers who are interested in how users and digital objects mutually constitute each other, the politics of software and the historiography of the web. -Information, Communication & Society
