The aim of this reading group is to bring together staff and students across disciplines to explore findings and methods of research involving social media. The reading group will cover a wide range of themes, including activism, advocacy, surveillance, identity, politics, everyday life, big data, ethics, journalism, accountability, and pluralism – and any others deemed of interest by the membership.

Each month, we will meet to discuss a reading. Whenever possible, the reading’s author will be in attendance and will begin the meeting with a short presentation on the research’s methodology or other relevant aspects. The reading group, which is funded by the ESRC and co-convened by Ella McPherson from Sociology/CGHR and Anne Alexander from the Cambridge Digital Humanities Network, will be open in the first instance to staff and PhD students, with remaining places allocated to MPhil students.
