Project description

The central research questions of the research project are: which components (including interthinking) play salient roles in the distributed cognition of media production work and how are these components organized in interaction? The project analyses segments of 200 hours of audio-recorded media production meetings in which (i) media products were planned, (ii) drafts were discussed, and (iii) updates and revisions were made.
