"NWP is proud to be a supporter of Global Conversations in Literacy Research, a free and open-access series of webinars with literacy researchers world-wide.
The Digital Is community might be particularly interested in the next webinar, January 20 at 3:00 p.m. ET, with Julia Davies from the University of Sheffield. Julia's presentation draws on a project looking at the role of Facebook in the lives of a group of fashion conscious trainee hairdressers living in a city in the north of England.
The research has an ethnographic texture; Dr. Davies, shared in the young women’s Facebook spaces and took part in their conversations. Facebook was the lens through which she viewed their lives and through which she traced interactions and events."
