Social Media for Documentation and Commentary

Date: 9:00am - 10:15am PDT May 20, 2014

As more of life transpires online, as scholars and teachers we have the opportunity to document and review the library of exchanges archived in social media spaces. In this workshop, we’ll first look at practical techniques and philosophical implications, of “recording” postings, threads, and conversations, using apps like Storify. We’ll also examine the current citation standards for such materials in APA, MLA, and Chicago styles.
