“Clip, move, adjust": Video editing as reflexive rhythmanalysis in networked publics.

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication

This paper focuses on the methodological challenges of studying the dynamics of technologically and computationally mediated publics, especially regarding young people’s experiences. The method we discuss in this paper is part of a larger set of qualitative methodologies developed by the authors as part of a six-year (and ongoing) study of how youth experience social media (authors). In this larger study, youth produced, among other things, videologs of their experiences, after being trained in auto-elicitation and ethnographic methods (authors). As a further step in reflexive autoethnographic analysis, the method we outline consists of asking participants to engage in a phenomenologically grounded analytical editing process of these videologs. In this study, we find that as participants edit their own videos, they add information and depth at a level beyond what we researchers can bring in our own analyses. This tool is a productive way to get closer to the granularity of participants’ lived experiences.
