The advent of social media offers anthropologists exciting opportunities to extend their research to communities in fresh ways. At the same time, these technological developments open up anthropological fieldwork to different hazards. Networked Anthropology explores the increasing appropriation of diverse media platforms and social media into anthropological research and teaching. The chapters consider the possibilities and challenges of multimedia, how network ecologies work, the ethical dilemmas involved, and how to use multimedia methodologies. The book combines theoretical insights with case studies, methodological sketches and pedagogical notes. Drawing on recent ethnographic work, the authors provide practical guidance in creative ways of doing networked anthropology. They point to the future of ethnography, both inside and outside the classroom, and consider ways in which networked anthropology might develop.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Networked Anthropology is an essential roadmap for conducting engaged anthropology on a rapidly changing digital terrain. Collins and Durington detail how anthropologists can make use of social media to link classrooms to local communities in ways that span the corporeal and the digital. They also point out both the potential ethical pitfalls and the unexpected benefits of embracing social networks at every stage of the research process."
- P. Kerim Friedman, National Dong Hwa University, Taiwan, and founding member of Savage Minds.

"Contemporary anthropologists share a networked world with research participants and other interlocutors -- a world in which we are all producing and consuming media throughout the ethnographic encounter. Collins and Durington examine how social media inexorably reshapes `the field' in both senses (fieldsite and disciplinary practice) and can potentially generate a more nuanced, ethical, public anthropology premised on reciprocity, sharing, and dialogue with participants and audiences."
- Krista Harper, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA
