Abstract: This paper is part of a larger project analyzing self-documentation online. Here, I am referring to the massive explosion of tools to document our selves, lives and others. In each instance, in every tweet, status update, photo, comment, “like”, etc., there exists a digital document; a transference of reality, both objective and subjective, into its online reproduction. Describing why we document ourselves and others and the implications of all this is can only follow from a conceptual analysis of what a digital document is. Here, I attempt to provide the start to this much-needed conceptualization. I begin by acknowledging that self-documentation is an invention of social media. Pre-mechanical types of documentation are discussed; however, more attention is paid to the rise of photography as a parallel to the rise of social media. In each instance, self-documentation is described as an atomization of ephemeral, lived experience into its consumable form. Last, I begin to put this conceptualization to work by developing a typology of different types of self-documentation on social media. The goal is to help better understand the unit of analysis that Sociologists of social media attempt to describe.

"Documented, Undocumented and Somewhere “In-Between:” Documentation Status and Its Effects on Children of Brazilian Immigrants" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Annual Meeting, Sheraton Boston and the Boston Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA, Jul 31, 2008 Online <PDF>. 2019-09-23 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p242625_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The systematic analysis of documentation status and its effects on children of immigrants is particularly timely and important given recent debates on immigration in the media and the defeat of recent proposed legislation such as the DREAM Act, which would have expanded opportunities for higher education and pathways to citizenship for children of undocumented immigrants. Using in-depth interviews with 50 Brazilian children of immigrants in young adulthood, I deconstruct the conventional black/white categorization of documented/undocumented, examining the “In-Between” status that many immigrant children occupy, often for long periods of their lives. In so doing, I argue that the state continues to structure opportunities through the creation of categories of membership, statuses which are uncertain and confusing for the immigrant youth. I examine the effects of the state’s power on the ground: how the uncertain statuses that result from the implementation of United States’ laws affect immigrant children’s daily lives, social worlds, and outlooks for the future. The findings have implications for discussions of the state, citizenship/belonging, immigrant incorporation, and transitions to adulthood.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Soon after the Bolsheviks came to power they established the most extensive state archival system in the world with unprecedented scope and use of documentary materials. This paper explores the Bolsheviks’ use of archives in the 1920s to support the state's efforts to build the economy and establish foreign relations, including responding to the many foreign financial claims brought against the new regime. As the Bolsheviks attempted to establish themselves as the legitimate rulers of Russia to both their domestic population and potential foreign diplomatic and economic partners they enlisted the “truth” represented in archival documents to support their claims.

Publication Type: Session Paper
Abstract: In the early sixties a film was made for the Ohio Police Training Division that has since become a strange cult classic. “The Ohio Tearoom Busts” as this film is named on its archival home at Planet Out, is a disturbing document in which child murders are used as an excuse to secretly film men having sex in bathrooms. In this twenty-minute training ‘documentary’, a police captain explains “the need to document our sex perverts” as a sting operation, complete with a careful description of how the filming was performed, graphic depictions of sex and even more disturbing descriptions of the resulting long incarcerations of the filmed subjects are shown and described. In the last forty years, this film has circulated as training by the state, as socialite pornography, as a film archivist oddity and as a bizarre queer cult classic. The multiple meanings and uses of this documentation of a particular cultural form of sexual exchange (sex in public bathrooms) in itself provides a history of how documenting queerness has morphed since the 1960s.
