Divorce in the digital age: a cyber autoethnographic exploration Article (Faculty180)

  • Dunn, Tasha Rose


  • In this article, I propose and use the method of cyber autoethnography to share my lived experience of divorce in the digital landscape and how I navigate this expansive, amorphous, and increasingly complex terrain. My emphasis on the digital expands the realm of autoethnographic research, which has focused primarily on human experiences in physical places. I focus instead on human experiences, particularly those of divorce, in cyberspaces such as Facebook. My vulnerability stems from the recognition that deeper qualitative understandings are needed to help people better navigate their relational histories and futures online as our lives and thus our relationships become inextricably tethered to digital technology.
