Sorry for the blogging hiatus but I’ve been very busy with a move to … University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill! I’m very excited to be an assistant professor at the School of Information and Library Science with an affiliate appointment in the Sociology Department at UNC, Chapel Hill. Please update your emails for me to zeynep at unc dot edu.
A few more dates and updates:
On September 4, I’m going to be giving a talk at the Ars Electronica Festival in Lintz, Austria.
On September 27, I’m going to be giving a talk at the Berkman Center at Harvard (where I’m a fellow this year) on Social Media and Collective Action Dynamics in Autocracies. (Link coming up soon)
October 25, I’ll be the luncheon speaker at the Joan Shorenstein Center on Press, Politics and Public Policy at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government (it’s a Cambridge year:-). Title and link coming up).
I’m currently at the 2011 American Sociological Association Conference in Las Vegas. I have a presentation on privacy and disclosure related strategic choices of college youth on Saturday at 4.30 (August 20) ; a talk on social media and Arab uprisings at 10:30 on Sunday (Caesars Palace, Forum 14, Pool Level, August 21); and a presentation on “cyberasociality” –i.e. mediated interaction and sociality– on Monday 4.30 (August 22).
Here’s the powerpoint for my first talk titled “A Generation Reacts: Privacy, Disclosure and Strategic Action on Facebook”. (I’ll post the other talks later)

I hope to soon catch up with rest of my blogging including finally getting back to the question of social connectivity and Internet in the last post as well as the many other topics which developed over the summer including the UK riots, BART cell phone shutdown, etc. Who said summers were downtime for news?
Gotta update that sidebar!
Welcome to UNC! Happy to have you here. Please visit us in the journalism school.
