This week on “Culture Wars,” the sociologist and sociologist of culture, Katherine Faulders, joins us to talk more about how social media can help us understand ourselves and our place in the world, and also to look at the potential for cultural appropriation to take on a more subversive meaning.
You can also listen to our conversation with Katherine here.
We will be joined by two guests this week, who have a lot to say about social networks and how they can be used to better understand and respond to the ways in which the world is changing.
We will be discussing this week’s “Sociological Imagination Meaning” and “Sci-Fi Subculture in Sociology.”
We will also be bringing you two more interviews from the past week.
First up is a talk from “The American Sociological Association” on the future of sociology, and then, a follow-up on “The Future of the Sociological Imagining.”
The former talk was co-hosted by sociologist Katherine Falders and sociologists Daniel W. Pare and Jonathan G. Katz, and is called “The Imagining Sociology of Social Media.”
What can we learn from the new wave of social media research?
The latest social media studies and innovations have opened up new opportunities to think about the way social media is used and to look for ways to improve the quality of what we see, listen, and share.
As the world’s communication and information systems continue to grow and change, and as the boundaries between different spheres of our lives expand, we need to be aware of the new ways that social media and technology are changing how we interact with each other.
We also need to learn how to think through how we use these technologies.
For example, how can we create a society in which there are no boundaries between social media communities?
How can we use social media to create an inclusive, supportive, and welcoming society?
Can we create social media spaces that are more welcoming, inclusive, and inclusive of all types of people?
Can we create spaces that provide opportunities for all kinds of people to thrive?
We can learn a lot about our world by thinking through how social platforms, social media, and their users interact, share, and participate.
And we can also learn a little about our place as individuals.
I hope you will join us in this discussion as we look at how to use social platforms and technology to better share, understand, and respond.
