a thorough analysis of the practices of blog production in the Lebanese context. In the following, I outline the methods I used for my study and the material I gathered. I will also discuss the ethical challenges I encountered during my fieldwork. In chapter 2.1, I will then provide a more detailed analysis of fieldwork procedures and my role in the field. METHODS AND ETHICS OFF- AND ONLINE When talking with other researchers and with non-academics about doing a study on blogging in Lebanon, I was often confronted with the question why I needed to go

2. The local field of blogging In the following, I will now turn more closely to the focus of my study: the local field of blogging in Lebanon and the bloggers and their activities on the ground. This will lay the foundation for the following parts, in which I analyse actors and practices (II) and ethos, audience and publicness (III). In the first part, I sketch my entry into the field and reflect on the fieldwork in Beirut. It is my conviction that writing on methodology is not merely a matter of duty in any ethnographic work that can simply be

Acknowledgements First and foremost, I would like to thank all the research participants in Lebanon for sharing their thoughts and experiences with me. Thank you for taking the time for interviews, meetings and questions despite your busy schedules and various commitments. A further thanks goes to them for being open for me to participate in blogger meetings and training sessions, and also for showing me some of ‘their Beirut’. Likewise, I would like to thank the Orient Institute in Beirut for providing me with an office space during my initial

McLuhan made the term “global village” prominent with his theory that the new electronic interdependence recreates the world in the image of a “global village”. (McLuhan 1962: 31) In contrast, Patricia Nabti proposes the use of the term “global village” for the field of anthropology on Lebanon (1989, 1992, 1995). Her aim is to convey a concept of the village that combines the

Conclusion: Blogging as field, practice and mode of publicness This monograph is an anthropological endeavour in the study of a digital media practice in the context of the Middle East. By ethnographically following seven ac- tors in the local field of blogging in Lebanon, as well as including a wider sample of bloggers, I undertook an empirical study of a digital media practice in a local context. My central questions were directed at exploring the material, social and cultural conditions and practices of blog production, the organisation of the
