#Hashtag Activism: Networks of Race and Gender Justice

Common Hour - #Hashtag Activism: Networks of Race and Gender Justice

Sarah Jackson 

Sarah J. Jackson teaches in the Annenberg School of Communication at the University of Pennsylvania and previously was a fellow in the Harvard Kennedy School Shorenstein Center for Media, Politics and Public Policy. Her second book is #HashtagActivism: Race and Gender in America’s Networked Counterpublics (MIT Press, 2019). Her Common Hour talk draws on this new work. Covering #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo among other movements, Professor Jackson will discuss how historically disenfranchised groups have used Twitter to advance particular narratives, control political spin, and build diverse networks of dissent.

This event was proposed by Alison Kibler and is sponsored by the North Foundation.
