I have been working on a series of projects looking at how young people are using TikTok for social activism and advocacy, including a pilot project funded by Tencent comparing the forms of knowledge being shared on TikTok and Douyin – a journal article is currently under review and a video recording of my first conference talk on the topic is being prepared by the good folks at CCAT.
