students of Boston University’s Division of Emerging Media Studies are

#ScreentimeBU is a graduate conference that provides a platform for
students to showcase their research and to network with peers in emerging
media studies.This year’s #ScreentimeBU aims to remove the misleading cover
of media “hypes” and explore the civic, social, and psychological
implications of today’s media landscape. This conference is an opportunity
to bridge diverse perspectives on the roles of users and technology in new
media and to lay the groundwork for future research in the field.Emerging
media studies is an inherently interdisciplinary field, and as such we
welcome abstracts from a variety of disciplines on a range of topics
centered around our conference theme: Authenticity in digital
communication, online engagement and offline effects. Suggested topics
include, but are not limited to: - Social media movements - Social media
bots- Algorithm bias - Political communication - Media in health
communication and toxic news - Online relationships, communities, and
social networks- Media communication transparency- Big data analysis and
machine learning- Media psychology - Self-presentation on social media and
digital privacy concerns- Video games, virtual reality, and augmented
reality- Media literacy, online actions, and offline consequences-
