First year summary

Hey, hi, hello! I have something to tell you. This academic year is coming to an end faster than I would’ve expected and less than in a month I’ll be able to say that I’m officially done with my first year of university. I think I need quick moment to think about this because it […]

180MC reflection

Reflection on 180MC Living in the Digital World – Putting Theory into Practice This particular module was very interesting. I enjoyed how the lecturer made everyone feel important by letting to express themselves, share ideas for the final project, discuss others’ work and so on. In addition, the assessment was one of the most interesting […]

Reading response. Week 7 || 180MC

Both of this week’s readings were explaining the concept of new and old media. Though their ideas were a bit different and, I may say, contrasting. Charles Acland in “Residual Media” talks about how we can always find the presence of the past in something new, very recent. The old is always being improved and […]

Researhing the digital. Week 8 || 182MC

Social media ethnography: the digital researcher in a messy web From the title I could tell that the text will be something I am familiar with already because I have learned about ethnography at the beginning of the course so I was interested to deepen my knowledge about it and maybe see ethnography in a […]

From the first read, it left me confused because the text is in some ways metaphoric and it can be understood both literally and interpreted. In […]

Researching people. Week 6 || 182MC

The Great Interview: 25 Strategies for Studying People in Bed First of all, I found the name of the article intriguing because it does not really explain a lot and it is not clear what the article is going to talk about. Before reading I wanted to find out if it is actually going to be […]

Reading response. Week 4 || 180MC

The reading is a chapter from Katherine Hayles’s book “How We Think: Digital Media and Contemporary Technogenesis” and it discusses how digital media affects humanities. To be more exact, it looks into how students’ reading changed over the last decades. The author is not biased and offers two points of view providing enough valid research […]

Analysis of ‘Reality’ and Space First of all, when I hear the term ‘Space’, I immediately start thinking about the Moon, planets and rocket ships so I was highly intrigued to find out what ‘Space’ means in the context of research. From the text I found out that this type of research focuses on identifying […]
