The earliest practitioner of EC in the field of communication was Gerry Philipsen,
who wrote a series of ethnographic field reports (1975, 1976, 1986), a
methodological statement (1977), and a theoretical stance (1989a) for doing
such study. Philipsen formulated the approach as a way to analyze
communication as a cultural resource, with others in the field using this approach,
for example, to investigate communication among Vietnam veterans (Braithwaite,

through which identities are invented and yet come to be fixed as naturalized
categories that legitimate certain groups over others. Furthermore, heterogeneity

nicely demonstrated by Ramírez-Sánchez (2008) in a case study of Afro Punks
who are marginalized within the already marginalized (mostly White) punk
cocultural group.
