21 February 2023 - 21 February 2023
1:00PM - 3:00PM
Cosin's Hall, Seminar Room, Palace Green
An IAS workshop with Professor Katrin Tiidenberg (Tallinn University)
If your research questions suggest you inquire into people’s social media practices, explore what else they do, when they are scrolling, posting, commenting, lurking, sharing or liking, or ponder how meaning is made with (visual) social media content, you are invited to a 2-hour workshop with Katrin Tiidenberg. After a brief introduction into her ways of thinking about and with social media content and of some tactics and methods for analyzing visual social media content that Katrin has developed over the past 10 years and used in a variety of her own research projects, we will do some hands-on experimentation (you can bring content you’d like to analyze, or we can provide you with sample material) and collaborative workshopping of the experience.
This workshop is organised as part of the IAS major research project ‘Risks to Youth and Studenthood in Digital Spaces’ (Epiphany 2023), led by Dr Rille Raaper and Prof Mariann Hardey at Durham University. To register your attendance at the workshop, please send an email at email@example.com
