1. Please provide a brief summary of your video and research.

My research looks at the consumer culture behind buzz word, “sharing economy”. Digitally-enabled, this economy makes it easier for people to consume collaboratively by renting and lending private resources to strangers. However, the use of the term “sharing” is problematic for society and consumers. Sharing is the ability to offer something to others for their use without expectations of reciprocity. This is not the case with businesses that claim they allow “sharing” when there is obvious economic exchange. With a multi-sited ethnographic field study using interviews and online and offline observations, my research investigates how traditional culture of ‘sharing’ has changed in context of home-sharing platform, Airbnb.

Fascinating topic and I look forward to hopefully reading the results. I love the concept of Airbnb and as you know, I did it for 3 years in Auckland. I loved meeting all our guests and hearing their stories. But in my experience Airbnb's culture has gradually changed in the face of its growing popularity ie: people are signing up for Airbnb who have no interest in meeting new people and sharing their space - all they want to do is make money. The downside is that in some cities, rentals have been taken off the market for locals in favour of the money that can be made out of Airbnb guests. But this is at the cost of affordable housing for locals which is very worrying. No doubt your thesis will be thought provoking and useful - all the best and well done on a fantastic presentation!!
