Dear Colleagues,
My new book on sociality on YouTube is now out! It is called Thanks for Watching: An Anthropological Study of Video Sharing on YouTube (University Press of Colorado, 2019). The book takes a diachronic approach to analyze how YouTubers share video to connect rather than achieve celebrity. The book may be used for teaching themes in new media such as the impact of monetization on video sociality, digital migration patterns, overstated claims of narcissism, and an exploration of YouTube as a site of the posthuman. Whereas many books about video focus on identity performance, this book incorporates the rhythm analysis of Lefebvre to understand interactional dynamics over time.
