Dear Colleagues,

RMIT University has just opened the 2016 round of applications for
Research Fellowships and Senior Research Fellowships.* The Digital
Ethnography Research Centre at RMIT encourages applications from globally
leading scholars interested in working with us through such fellowships.
Please see here for more information about the Fellowships:


The *Digital Ethnography Research Centre* (DERC) focuses on understanding a
contemporary world where digital and mobile technologies are increasingly
inextricable from the environments and relationships in which everyday life
plays out. DERC excels in both academic scholarship and in our applied work
with external partners from industry and other sectors.

DERC approaches this world and how we experience it through innovative,
reflexive and ethical ethnographic approaches, developed through
anthropology, media and cultural studies, design, arts and documentary
practice and games research.

Our research is incisive, interventional and internationally leading. Going
beyond the call of pure academia we combine academic scholarship with
applied practice to produce research, analysis and dissemination projects
that are innovative and based on ethnographic insights. For details about
DERC see http://www.digital-ethnography.net/the-people/
