News from Apr 28, 2022
The Division Media Use Research hosts Prof. Pilar Lacasa of the University of Alcalá (Spain) from April to June 2022. Her main objective is to focus on how new practices of citizenship appear in adolescent fan communities mediated by digital tools. She will analyze new practices of citizenship emerging from social networks - such as participation on TikTok - that were unimaginable some years ago. During her stay at the Institute Prof. Pilar Lacasa hopes to get into exchange with other researchers and to investigate deeply on how young fans participate in social networks by using audiovisual discourses. She is particularly interested in how digital tools and cultural industries transform political participation of young people.
