Hi Lisa,

I'm teaching a fourth year course right now called Gender and Social Media.
The theoretical framework draws largely from Wajman, Castells and Fuchs but
I have incorporated a large variety of readings based around politics/social
justice, identity, gendered performances, privacy and surveillance, etc. If
you'd like more specifics, I can send them to you off-list.

Best of luck with your course design,


Adjunct Professor
