Here is a description of our Mini-track: Technology-facilitated social media present opportunities for new frontiers of research as they interact with cultures, identities, and diversity. As digital inequalities are on the rise globally, the current global pandemic makes understanding the internet and the related myriad divides, as well as increased reliance on digital technologies and social networking platforms more vital than ever.

Recognizing the kaleidoscope and intersectionality of culture, gender and identity, this minitrack presents innovative research across a wide range of methods and subjects. Exploring how social media technologies become interconnected with and embedded in existing socio-cultural contexts is essential to assess how these platforms affect key power dynamics in society. This minitrack sets the scene for analyzing better how digital and social media can foster (or serve as hindering factors for) diversity and inclusion in multiple settings, especially in a world coping with renewed calls for social justice and a pandemic likely to have long-term impacts. In sum, this minitrack highlights findings from a range of disciplines and methodologies that focus on the three I’s of internet, identity, and inclusion as they intersect with transformational social media and perhaps now more than ever impact human lives.

Possible paper topics include, but are not limited to:

  *   The pandemic & roles of social media in inclusion and/or exclusion
  *   Inter-cultural and Cross-cultural use of Social Media
  *   Crowdsourcing Processes and Inclusion Issues
