年轻人在私密空间中的信息传播技术实践

Emotional encounter: Researching young people’s intimate spaces in their information & communication technology practices

6

This article discusses the role and place of emotions in research and, particularly, in researching young people’s intimate spaces in their information and communication technology (ICT) practices. It echoes Harris and Hutington’s remarks (2001) that we cannot claim to explore and understand people’s social life, without taking into account the potentially powerful role played by emotion. In this paper, I show how adopting a relational position in terms of theoretical framework, such as I have developed it, has two main implications: First, it considers the exploration of young people’s intimate sphere of emotion as a central task; second, it involves discussing the methodological tools that render such an exploration possible. I present how I translated these implications, by means of an ethnography of young people’s practices in Montreal and, notably, by recursive interviews. Finally, I show how emotions cross over, and are imbricated in, both young people’s practices and in my relationship with the young people themselves, showing all the great wealth of this emotional encounter.
