Article title

Home Movies as Everyday Media Histories. Approaching Home Made Imagery in the Age of New Media


Title variants

Home movies jako codzienne historie zmediatyzowane. Badanie obrazów powstałych w warunkach domowych w dobie nowych mediów

Languages of publication



The author presents methodological concept devoted to studies of home movies. She combines in an original way broad range of discourses. For example she utilizes André Gaudreault’s and Philippe Marion’s studies on the genealogy of media, the concept of intermediality, media convergence, theory of remediation and researches on media domestication. This medium-focused perspective convincingly links together social and technological history – studies on “the history of the media-shaping man and the user-shaping media”.
W swoim artykule autorka prezentuje koncept metodologiczny służący analizie prywatnych filmów (home movies). W oryginalny sposób łączy perspektywę genealogii mediów André Gaudreault i Philippe Marion, sięga po refleksję nad intermedialnością i konwergencją mediów, wykorzystuje też teorię remediacji i badania nad oswajaniem praktyk medialnych (media domestication researches). Perspektywa autorki, skoncentrowana na kategorii medium, pozwala jej w przekonujący sposób połączyć historię społeczną i historię technologii, badanie „historii mediów kształtujących człowieka i badanie użytkownika kształtującego medium”.
