New from the TikTok Cultures Research Network – an Open Access conceptual glossary + readings & resources on thinking about social justice through the lens of social media pop cultures like TikTok and influencers: Social Justice Through Social Media Pop Cultures: Case Studies And Reading Resources On Influencers And TikTok.
This resource seeks to consider the various aspects, angles, and conceptual synonyms to better understand social justice pursuits on social media. This resource comprises two parts: (1) Conceptual glossary and (2) Readings & resources.
