Designing the Social: Unpacking Social Media Design and Identity
15 July 2020 (13:00-13:45)
Starting from 15 July 2020, The Digital Sociology Study Group will be hosting monthly discussions, workshops, and book launches with academics, researchers, authors, practitioners, and activists exploring a range of issues around digital sociology. These will be hosted online and available to all who wish to take part.
The first session, taking place 13:00-13:45 on 15 July (BST), will be a book-launch for ‘Designing the Social: Unpacking Social Media Design and Identity’ written by Harry Dyer, a member of the Digital Sociology Study Group and a Lecturer in Education at the University of East Anglia. This will be a 20 minute introduction to the book from Harry, followed by a Q+A.
The event will be hosted using Jitsi, a secure, free open-source video-hosting alternative to Zoom with end-to-end encryption. To access the discussion, simply visit meet.jit.si/DigitalSociology. We will be muting cameras and microphones upon arrival. To talk and contribute, simply unmute yourself.
