Final seminar - Elisa Tattersall Wallin

Welcome to the final seminar of PhD student Elisa Tattersall Wallins presentation of thesis: Sound reading: Exploring and conceptualising audiobook practices among young adults 

Abstract: This is an explorative PhD project on audiobook practices with a focus on young adults. The thesis consists of four articles, the first of these explored patterns of audiobook use on a large scale in order to understand the daily, weekly, and yearly temporal use within one audiobook subscription service. The second article clarified and conceptualised four issues for audiobook researchers in the 2020's, such as how audiobook use can be conceptualised in relation to reading. The third article identified routinised audiobook practices among young adults, and finally, the fourth article explored subscription service apps and the affordances of the features within the audiobook player function. 

Opponent are Professor Pamela McKenzie, Faculty of Information and Media Studies, Western University, Ontario.
