Social Media in Humanities Teaching and Research

Social media has been a part of the higher education landscape for years, both as topic of study and research, and as a tool used to achieve pedagogical goals. What lessons have humanists learned about using social media for both of these aims? How should we prepare humanists of the future to use this medium in their teaching and research? Finally, how will social media change over the next 10 years, and how will that affect us as humanists?

Possible topics:

  • How will humanists make use of services like the implementation of the Library of Congress’ Twitter archive or the recently-launched Topsy.com Twitter analysis service?
  • How will future researchers combat “linkrot“ from defunct link-shortening services?
  • Where do educators draw the line on concerns about FERPA and social media?
