Abstract

This paper aims to examine a socio-cultural and humanities research method, namely ethnography, in the context of digitalized and post-pandemic society. Ethnography offers a way to comprehend community groups deeply by revealing their system of signification and way of life. Since its emergence in the mid-19th century, ethnography has had a strong tradition of researching communities outside the researcher's culture. These two activities ultimately led me to a new understanding of ethnographic research, not only to develop fieldwork techniques in the pandemic era but also to determine who the subject of ethnographic research should be in the era of a digitalized and globalized society.
