The Mobile Generation

My friend and fellow anthropological fieldworker, Geraldine, is currently doing her graduate fieldwork in Toronto, studying how young Canadians use mobile phones to manage social relations and the culture that arise around that piece of technology. After having some initial trouble getting access to the field (some bureaucracy and permit-juggling had to be negotiated), she’s entered the field proper.

She’s put up a blog about her fieldwork and it will be interesting to see where it’ll take her. Exciting stuff.
