Ventriloquism in Dog Blogs

Wo wir grade bei Bullshit-Science waren: An der Uni Jyväskylä haben sie Ventriloquismus (Bauchreden) durch anthropomorphisierte Hunde in Blogs untersucht. Da stehen dann so Perlen drin wie das hier: „dog bloggers use anthropomorphism as a discursive means for crafting and collectively ratifying authenticity in a translocal, interest-driven and informal social media context in which traditional territorial and demographic parameters of authenticity are not easily available or relevant.“ Yeah.
