I have also had the pleasure of Attending Mary [Ebeling]’s talk outlining the results of her initial interview[s] which will form part of her PhD thesis. (Democratic Spaces, Delayed Utopia: Political Exile and Online Discourse) It’s a very different approach to the one I’m used to.... I’m a bit unclear about how [INCITE folk or sociologists in general] are able to get beyond someone’s agenda to a “purer truth” (not a term I can see any self respecting sociologist using but it’s the only one I can think of to explain) and I’m sure observing [INCITE folk] in the field will be illuminating.
