Digital platforms are so pervasive in our everyday life to the point that it becomes no longer meaningful to separate our lives from them. How do they shape our everyday life, cultural industry, labor relations, and identity? How do digital platforms operate their power—economically, materially, and politically? In this webinar, we invite three experts in Media and Communication Studies, Dr. Dal Yong Jin (Simon Fraser University), Dr. Jean-Christophe Plantin (London School of Economics), and Dr. Julie Yujie Chen (University of Toronto) to discuss the global impacts of digital platforms and infrastructures.

 

Moderator: Dr. Anita Say Chan, Associate Professor of Institute of Communications Research, iSchool, and National Center for Supercomputing Applications at UIUC

 

Organized by: Jingyi Gu and Jane Pyo, Institute of Communications Research
