Identity and Agency Online: Discussion (Registration required)

In this discussion, we will start exploring questions of identity online and on social media platforms specifically. Participants will have opportunities to see examples of different approaches to presenting one’s identity online, and learn about research that has been conducted on academic influence via social media. Through pair and large-group activities, we will explore questions of agency and identity online and the role that metrics and algorithms can play in how others perceive our virtual identities.
