Show and Tell: Mapping communicative patterns in everyday life

Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference abstract for conferenceResearchpeer-review


Six months ago, we set out to conduct qualitative fieldwork in China, the US, and Denmark, following a tested and shared approach that allowed for comparability of media practices across culturally distinct contexts. This paper presents that particular methodological setup aimed at unravelling complicated, ubiquitously embedded, and mundane media uses and rituals as they occur in various everyday contexts. Finally, we discuss the challenges and rewards in approaching media practices through the mapping of individuals’ communicative patterns.
