Since I won’t be in class for next class, here is the plan we agreed upon:
Each student will browse a number of journals and conference proceedings from 2014 and identify 2 articles they want to read. The 2 articles must be outside the student’s main area of interest.
Then, each student will blog reading notes about the 2 articles before class time. The reading notes will be detailed enough to help others understand the article, but will still be concise. Make this an exercise in the art of effective explanation of scholarly research.
Then, during class time, all students will read and comment upon each other’s blog posts.
After class, please write a reflection where you preserve your takeaways. You might want to record:
- ideas you learned about that you want to remember
- articles you might want to read in the future
- ideas you might want to look into in the future
Please find below a list of publication outlets where you are likely to find research on social media. Browse their tables of contents for the current year and pick 2 articles. Of course, you will need to get the full text through the libraries’ site.
- First Monday
- New Media and Society
- ACM CSCW conference proceedings
- ACM CHI conference proceedings
- ICSWM conference proceedings
This list is not exclusive, it’s just what I could think of off the top of my head, but I am missing many other ACM conferences that publish social media research. As you come across more, please list them in the comments below.
