Diversity Scholars in Social Media Discussion
Tuesday, March 21, 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm EDT
Scholars are navigating changing spaces embedded in a system that can be slow and resistant to an evolving digital world. They are receiving competing messages about how and when to develop a digital brand and engage on social media. This session will explore how scholars, particularly those conducting diversity or anti-racism scholarship, are leveraging social media to foster scholarly communities, disseminate their research and scholarship for social change, and connect with public audiences. Panelists will also discuss how they have navigated resistance from colleagues in academia, trolling and bullying on social media, and reporting their social media engagement in the tenure, promotion, and faculty review process.
Moderator: Edmund Graham, associate director of the National Center for Institutional Diversity
- Antar Tichavakunda, assistant professor of Race and higher education at the University of California, Santa Barbara
- Laila McCloud, assistant professor of educational leadership and counseling at Grand Valley State University
- Aireale Rodgers, postdoctoral fellow on the HEAL Project at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
