Millions of people around the world today spend portions of their lives in online virtual worlds. Tom Boellstorff conducted more than two years of fieldwork in Second Life, living among and observing its residents in exactly the same way anthropologists traditionally have done to learn about cultures and social groups in the so-called real world. He conducted his research and applied the rigorous methods of anthropology to study many facets of this new frontier of human life, including issues of gender, race, sex, money, conflict and antisocial behavior, the construction of place and time, and the interplay of self and group. Join this event to learn about the ethnography of the virtual world, particularly in Indonesia.

Tom Boellstorff is professor of anthropology at the University of California, Irvine. He was the editor-in-chief of the American Anthropologist, the flagship journal of the American Anthropologists Association, and has recentely joined the faculty of the new Intel Science and Technology Center for Social Computing. He’d done almost 20 years of field research in Indonesia.

Some of his publications are:

  • Coming of Age in Second Life: An Anthropologist Explores the Virtually Human (download chapter 1)
  • A Coincidence of Desires: Anthropology, Queer Studies, Indonesia
