and Technology*
Wednesday, November 20, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Washington Room 5, Exhibit Level, Marriott Wardman Park

Registration Fee: $30 student members; $40 all other attendees

2013 marks the 25th anniversary of Donal Carbaugh's landmark Ethnography of
Communication, *Talking American: Cultural Discourses on Donahue* (1988),
which was groundbreaking in its use of television discourse in Ethnography
of Communication (EC) research. Likewise, this preconference will celebrate
Carbaugh's work, while using it as a springboard to explore the dynamic
array of new communication technologies that EC scholars and students are
working with in their research and teaching. The preconference will include
brief presentations on cutting-edge EC research, methods, and teaching
utilizing new technologies, break-out brainstorming sessions on these
topics, and discussion of ways forward in the Ethnography of Communication
and new technologies. The preconference will conclude with a Keynote
Address by Donal Carbaugh on ways forward in the Ethnography of
Communication and new technologies, including discussion of his forthcoming
book from Taylor & Francis, *"That's Not Funny!" Reporting Cultures in 60
Minutes*, which uses a variety of technologies in its methodology.
