-  Student Directed Seminar: SOCIOLOGY OF SOCIAL MEDIA - How are social media platforms, from Facebook to YouTube to TikTok, changing the world? In the past two decades, we have seen an explosive rise of various social media platforms that have greatly impacted society, shaping how race, gender, class, sexuality, ability, etc. can be conceptualized. As a dominant method for transmitting, fostering, and developing knowledge and culture, social media has dire effects on how we and the platforms themselves can exist as social agents. This seminar will explore how social media can be understood from a sociological lens, and how it might be applied to participants' everyday social media use.
