Methods Bibliography

The Methods collection was initially developed to support three projects: the 2016-2021 Creative Hubs and Networks Database (researcher Mary Elizabeth Luka), the 2021 Practice Makes Perfect methods intensive (co-hosts: Mary Elizabeth Luka, Annette Markham, Shannon Mattern) and the 2021-2022 Research in Residence initiative (co-leads Mary Elizabeth Luka & Robin Sokoloski). It is presented on the Critical Digital Methods Institute (CDMI) website at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) to support CDMI’s overarching interdisciplinary focus on seeking to build bridges across the gaps that exist between disciplines, media, systems and people.

This bibliography will be useful to organizations and individuals interested in ethnographic, research-creation, digital, and critical methods. The information collected for this bibliography came from multiple sources: methods and digital ethnographic methods resources sourced by Annette Markham, Shannon Mattern and Mary Elizabeth Luka in 2020-2021; creative hubs and networks inventories first conducted by Mary Elizabeth Luka in 2016 during a SSHRC Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship; augmented in 2018 by Luka and Jacqueline Wallace; with further contributions in 2020 and 2021 made by Luka, Wallace, Rachel Barber-Pin, Katy Ilona-Harris, Claudia Sicondolfo, Samarth Singhania, Hillary Walker, Helen Yung and Madison Zinger, supported in part by a University of Toronto Connaught New Researcher Award and by the KMD Institute. The tagging system was overhauled and updated by Barber-Pin in 2020-2021, while the Tableau dashboards were developed by Barber-Pin, Jermaine Williams, Alexander and Luka with the advice and help of UTSC digital librarians Kirsta Stapelfeldt, Paulina Rousseau and David Kwasny in 2020-21. Web design is by J.P. King and Jermaine Williams.
