- Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Individuals already immersed in digital life can find it difficult to objectively evaluate their social networks, let alone the role gender plays in them. In the “Social Media and Social Justice” unit of her Gender, Race, and Labor in the Digital Worlds course, Alexis Lothian asks her students to test the limits and boundaries of their social networks, document the results, and reflect on their digital activities within larger social structures. Designed as a larger research project where students must determine their research topics, questions, and methods, students were given enormous freedom to evaluate their relationship to social media. This project could be remixed to evaluate online gaming networks such as Fat, Ugly or Slutty, a blog that documents the gender-specific harassment directed toward women gamers, or communities such as those cohering around Facebook groups.
