In this talk, Amber M. Hamilton (Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities) draws on 18-months of digital ethnographic fieldwork within Black Twitter to define a new theory of “doing race” in the digital sphere, showing how social media influences and structures ideas about race and racism in contemporary American society.
This event will occur both in the Nafziger Conference Room (5055) Vilas Hall and Online.
