Friday, February 22 3:30 pm, Curtin 939

Ganaele Langlois is an important theorist of web 2.0 who thinks critically about social media and user-generated content, especially emphasizing how it shifts our attention from knowledge content to the conditions that make such content possible. She will lead a workshop on Infoscape Research Lab’s open tools that help analyze blogs, YouTube, Twitter, as well as the web in general. The workshop will be especially relevant to faculty, staff, and students working in the social sciences. She will also deliver a public lecture titled, “Software Studies: A Case for New Critical Methodologies” as part of the Social Studies of Information Research Group (SSIRG) Speaker Series. The talk will take place at 3:30 pm on Friday, February 22 in Curtin Hall 175.
