Research and Publications: This summer we have been making headway designing our survey to commence my 3-year funded SSHRC Research Project, “Social Media in the Hands of Young Citizens: evolving forms of participatory democracy.”  Dr. Ian Reilly and I are just finishing an essay for publication titled “Satire and Social Change: The Rally to Restore Sanity and the Future of Politics”, and Kelly Ladd and I are finishing up a paper intended for First Monday on “Women Make Vlogs”, summarizing our research into the gender politics and experience of women vloggers on YouTube.
