Seminar: “Social Media in Southeast Turkey: Love, Kinship and Politics” by Elisabetta Costa, Postdoctoral Research at the British Institute, Ankara
Honorary Research at UCL
Date: Wednesday, March 16
Place: Faculty of Business Administration, Umit Berkman Seminar Room (MA-330)
Abstract: The lecture will describe the social change brought by social media not as a linear and uniform process, but rather as the combination of contrasting transformations: public-facing social media is mainly a conservative space, whereas private channels of communication facilitate new social relationships. The lecture will examine these changes, along with the emergence of new notions of private and public.
