Abstract

In this chapter, we focus attention on how parents conceptualised and negotiated digital practices of family display, sharing and privacy during an academic study of their children’s everyday lives. The ‘Everyday Childhoods’ project set out to explore new ways of capturing, displaying and archiving data of children’s lives using digital research techniques. Through an engagement with the parents’ responses to the data generated and shared during the study, this article explores the issues that ‘displaying’ their child and family raised around representation, privacy and trust. Our discussion of the data, contextualized within the longitudinal case studies of the families, provide rich insights into technologically mediated practices of documentation, privacy and display within families.
