Words and Emotional Work: Classification Theory’s Constructs Useful for the Analysis of Social Media Data in Terms of Gender, Race, and Sexuality

(authors with names in bold will be attending the workshop)



Workshop participation is open to all. However, to facilitate the opportunity for a select set of presentations at the workshop, we welcome any interested scholars to submit a position paper, methods paper, or case study. Papers should describe novel and ethical research involving the use of social media data for the exploration of gender, race, and/or sexuality. We particularly welcome submissions from participants dealing with issues of intersectionality. Paper submissions are entirely optional, but if desired should be 2-4 pages in the iConference 2015 format. If accepted, authors will be provided with presentation details in advance of the workshop; they will also be invited to share their data for workshop demonstration purposes. We will provide opportunities throughout the workshop for presenters to get feedback on their research from workshop attendees and organizers. Participant papers will be made available on the workshop website with author permission.

Paper deadline: January 16, 2015
