Phd thesis on mobile blogging and everyday life

There is a growing interest in Academia in the impact of photosharing and photoblogging via popular services such as Flickr or Tumblr. Not only the very notion of publicly sharing personal pictures challenges common sense in regard to privacy and intellectual property, it also provides rich tools for ethnographic exploration and “witnessing” of everyday life – as recently highlighted by visual historian André Gunthert.

Soren Mork Petersen’ PhD thesis comes as a timely contribution to this research thread: Common Banality: The Affective Character of Photo Sharing, Everyday Life and Produsage Cultures was defended on January 2009 at the ITU Copenhagen – and supervised by an old acquaintance and former colleague of mine, Adrian Mackenzie.
