Expanding the conduct of everyday life concept for psychological media research with children

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


The concept conduct of everyday life has lately been discussed with regards to how children are engaged with participating in the manifold practices that constitute their daily living. They coordinate their actions with others (adults and children) in order to increasingly influence the conditions they experience in the various contexts they move through. Using the concept of children’s conduct of everyday life calls for analyzing children’s actions across contexts and in relation to others as well as the material arrangements at hand. Based on empirical material drawn from participant observation, the article shows how the concept is fruitful for investigating how kindergarten children use media technologies for conducting their everyday lives in the mutually shared kindergarten practice. Finally, it argues that the concept needs to be expanded in order to comprehensively grasp the intersubjective and material mediatedness of an everyday life with media technologies.
