As the Covid-19 pandemic has shifted many aspects of our lives to online contexts, this special issue of Ethnographic Encounters welcomes submissions reflecting upon what this shift has meant for our research practices. We do not only look for digital ethnographies, but we are also open to methodological, theoretical and even personal reflections on implications of digital research methods. For the first time in the history of the journal, we also open our submissions to all the departments of the University of St Andrews and to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. This will create a space for interdisciplinary reflections upon the new opportunities and challenges brought by the conditions of digital research.   Criteria of selection:  - You must be an undergraduate or postgraduate student - There must be an ethnographic element in the article submitted (we want to explore the meaning of being ‘ethnographic’ in its broadest sense, so the ‘ethnographic’ here includes but is not limited to fieldwork, reflections on personal research experience, theoretical engagement with ethnographic methodology etc). SA2002 Projects carried out in digital/online settings are also eligible. -  Word limit: 3000 words - Format using the following guidelines (JRAI): - Submit to by December 19th 2021 11:59 PM
