Tracing the Paths of Moving Artifacts in Youth Media Production
Gibbons, Damiana
English Teaching: Practice and Critique, v9 n1 p8-21 May 2010
Using a theoretical grounding in social semiotics, chronotopes, and social spaces with youth, I will discuss how identities are made possible and expressed in the interplay between the different parts of the youth video production process as youth artifacts as they move through time and space. The majority of my data is what I have come to term "moving artifacts", and this article will attempt to make a case for attempting to trace "the paths of the moving artifacts" through the spaces in which youth artifacts are created, within the youth artifacts themselves, and between the artifacts. Exploring how youth artifacts move through time and space provides a new lens with which to understand how identity expression occurs in youth media production. (Contains 4 figures and 3 footnotes.)
