Daniel Miller, professor, & Laura Haapio-Kirk, research assistant, University College London
Daniel Miller will offer an insight into the European Research Council Project “Why We Post” directed by him. The project is based on 9 anthropological field studies from different parts of the world. The project focuses on how infrastructure in form of social media is part of everyday life and reflects the local and regional differences in what people post and communicate through the platforms. Laura Haapio-Kirk shows how new digital technologies can be used to disseminate the results of such research.
