Hi AoIR friends,
There's still time to register for Building an Alternative Social Media Network, an AoIR 2023 half day preconference.  We've structured the event around the goal of fostering collaborations and working towards new projects. This workshop is meant to accelerate alternative social media studies, not only as a topic but as a network of intellectual production. Scholars working in this area need to develop new theoretical, methodological, and ethical approaches outside of those developed in relation to study of corporate social media. We also need to get scholars in this field together to build and develop a robust, interdisciplinary research network. To these ends, we encourage and welcome research from different areas that address the need for and value of studying platforms, practices and communities that are often on the margins of the internet and internet studies.
More info is available on the AoIR Preconference page (https://aoir.org/aoir2023/preconfworkshops/#building), and early bird registration for the conference ends in 10 days!
Hope you can join us!
