Reviewing Culture Online

Reviewing Culture Online

By Maarit Jaakkola

'Reviewing Culture Online: Post-Institutional Cultural Critique across Platforms' maps different communities—in institutional and non-institutional settings—which intersect with the genre of review, especially in the social web where reviewing is conducted on platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, and Vimeo. Drawing on the key concepts of cultural intermediation, platformized cultural production, and post-professionalism, the author looks at user-generated content in lifestyle communities beyond the binary of professional and amateur production.
