Jens Kjaerulff asked for references to anthropological sources on media use.
Two recent dissertations from our department could be useful. One is about
young girls in Lamu, Kenya, constructing their identities and ambitions
partly with the help of Indian videos. The other is about transnational
company culture in the Apple company, which does not only make computers but
also of course use them internally.
