Identity and Social Media Symposium: Bridging the Gaps between Computational Methods and Critical/Cultural Perspectives
COMMUNICATION INSTITUTE, LNCO 2910
9:00 AM - 3:30 PM
There are growing bodies of excellent research on problems related to identity and
social media from scholars taking both critical/cultural and computation social science
approaches. Unfortunately, these scholars are often not in conversation with one another.
This one day symposium bridges the gap by creating a setting where those trained in
different approaches can think together about the intersections of identity and social
Emerging scholars will present and get feedback on their work from established faculty
mentors who approach our topic from both critical/cultural and computational perspectives.
