Complexities and Ethical Challenges of Interpreting Social Media Posts

In this workshop, participants will explore the complexities of interpreting social media posts from young people in neighborhoods with high rates of violence. Additionally, we will consider the ethical challenges we face when involving digital constructed selves of the people we serve in our respective professional fields.

As participants, you will apply your own theoretical and practical frameworks from your professional field along with your personal experiences and perceptions to critically analyze social media posts from gang-involved and/or affiliated youth in Chicago. Together, we will challenge our frameworks and perceptions, while asking questions we may not have answers to.
