scholarship i’m going to read
So many new scholarly articles out there on blogging, narratives online and social media. In the next week or so I’m planning to read the following:
- Lindemann, Kurt.
Live(s) Online: Narrative Performance, Presence, and Community in LiveJournal.com. Text and Performance Quarterly, Volume 25, Number 4, October 2005 , pp. 354-372(19)
- Scheidt, Lois. Diary Weblogs as Genre Her qualifying paper for her PhD.
- van Dijck, Jose. Mediated Memories in the Digital Age. Standford University Press, 2007.
- Halavais, Alex. Search Engine Society Polity Press, 2008.
- boyd, danah. Taken Out of Context: American Teen Sociality in Networked Contexts (PDF)
I’ll report back when I’ve read them! Oh, and please, if you have suggestions as to good stuff I should read, let me know!

That looks a lot like my current reading list, lacking time to √ it all though. I just printed the two following papers that caught my interest:
Renvois of the past, present and future: hyperlinks and the structuring of knowledge from the EncyclopÈdie to Web 2.0
New Media Society 2009;11 95-113
Website history and the website as an object of study
New Media Society 2009;11 115-132
I think that Carl Christian Gr¯ndahl’s master thesis might catch you interest too:

Great list of texts, Jill! Very relevant to my current PhD research – I might have to poach your list and add it to mine! My reading list for the next week involves a 6-inch high pile of articles that I’ve been avoiding for the past six months (in theory. In reality, it will remain unread!).
I’m reading Alex’s book now. Between his book and yours, Polity has a nice little series going. Next up for me is probably Dalton Conley’s Everywhere USA, but I may indulge a long-term planned project and read Brian Vaughan’s Pride of Baghdad and Anthony Lappe’s Shooting War, two “docu-comics” about the Iraq War.
Takk for tips!

It’s rather nice seeing other peoples’ reading lists too! I’m going to check these out. And I’ve ordered a big pile of books too, so the list will grow…
