Abstract

This article considers the writing up of ethnographic research, focusing on the parts played by teamwork and by electronic mail (e-mail) in the construction of one of the chapters of a book written by the team. The career of this construction, which took place over a period of 2 months, is tracked through the e-mail messages that circulated among the team. These illustrate team interaction in analysis and writing, the use of e-mail technology, and particular issues in writing and how they were resolved. Following the reconstruction, we discuss the benefits offered by team and technology in this kind of enterprise-enhanced validity, enrichment, support, sustained impetus, and style. We conclude with some cautionary notes.
