Virve Peteri's PhD defence

Virve Peteri’s PhD defence
Originally uploaded by FransBadger.

Virve bravely defended her thesis “Mediaksi kotiin” (a study on domestication of media technologies) against a sociologist from Turku (from all places!) today in Linna Building. Her study is one of the few thorough qualitative studies that examines how new media (computers, mobile phones, home theatre equipment etc.) are being taken into the lives and also situated in people’s homes. You can access the entire study online (in Finnish) here: http://acta.uta.fi/teos.phtml?10916
