Television practices: ethnography, television and user practices
2014 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
This thesis explores television practices in a time when new technology has made it possible to interact with and create your own TV content. The work is focused on how user practices need to be understood in a context of changing technology. The practices studied also show the relevance of ethnographic methods, and especially the wide spectrum of these different methods within the field of Human-Computer Interaction. We distinguish between sociologically informed ethnography and anthropological ethnography. Two questions are addressed: how can new forms of television practices be understood by means of different ethnographic methods, and, on a wider level, what method can we use for analysing methods in ethnographic research? Because ethnographic methods are qualitative, we have also chosen to use an open and qualitative approach when analysing them. Through comparing our different methods – their data and findings on one specific topic – we have discovered the differences between the methodological approaches.
