This message is to inform you that the International Workshop “Hosting the Platform for Experimental, Collaborative Ethnography” (originally planned to be held on December 10) HAS BEEN CANCELLED, due to the sudden postponement of the speaker’s trip to Japan. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you in other events of the Ethnography Lab next year.

In this talk, I narrate a social, conceptual, and technical history of the Platform for Experimental, Collaborative Ethnography (PECE, pronounced “peace”), a digital research environment designed to support new forms of collaboration among researchers across time and space, and new ways of drawing users into ethnographic research. I highlight the work of the PECE Design Group, made up of ethnographers, technologists, public health and open source advocates, a philosopher and a historian, among others, linked through friendship and shared concern about science, technology, and society (STS). I explicate the ethnographic origins of PECE in studies of environmental public health and discuss how PECE has become a site for exposing, testing, and extending ethnographic methods and the pedagogical and political promise of ethnographic modes of inquiry. During this talk, I will describe PECE as a practical project to technically support collaborative ethnography, as a research project to understand the valences and possibilities of digital space for knowledge production, as an inquiry into the intellectual, social, and political consequences of different language ideologies, and as an experiment in counter-hegemonic social and language forms. In effect, I aim to describe and demonstrate what we have come to call “collaboration ethnography” and “collaborative hermeneutics.” The second half of my talk focuses on ways in which we have imagined PECE as a publication platform that supports new modes of writing and scholarly communication. Drawing in particular on a digital exhibit, STS Across Borders, that was developed in conjunction with the 2018 annual meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S), I highlight how we have started using PECE to create new archival, analytical, and publication possibilities that connect STS researchers in novel ways, drawing out what we have learnt about constructing digital research and publication environments that can inform other such projects, including NatureCulture.
