christine_hineAs part of SHARECITY we will hold six Sharing Labs (essentially expert master classes) around some key methodological and conceptual challenges in the project. The second of these is focused on the online research for our global food sharing database and we are delighted that Dr. Chrstine Hine has accepted our invitation to host this particular Sharing Lab. She will discuss her previous work as well provide a workshop for the SHARECITY team on digital ethnographies and researching online communities.

Christine Hine joined the University of Surrey in 2003, having previously worked at Brunel University. Her main research centres on the sociology of science and technology, including ethnographic studies of scientific culture, information technology and the Internet. She has also taken a lead role in promoting discussion of methodologies for sociological understanding of the Internet. Christine was President of the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology from 2004 to 2008. She has taught a range of courses at all levels, including Sociology of Contemporary Societies , Internet and Society, Analysing Media, Sociological Analysis and Documentary Analysis and Online Research. She is currently serving as Chair of the University Ethics Committee.
