Blogging, Time and Displacement

Authors


Abstract

This essay examines the relationship between blogging and other ostensibly more “serious” forms of writing, such as academic work. It explores the behavioural patterns known as “displacement activity” to describe the relationship between different kinds of writerly activity; and discusses the potential of blogging to break down some of the conventions of formal academic writing. It discusses the author’s Humanities Researcher blog.
