Just booked my flight tickets to go to the annual ICA conference – this time taking place in Phoenix, AZ, at the end of may. Last year’s Boston ICA was my first experience with this huge conference – there are just too many interesting sessions going on to be able to catch them all. This year is shaping up to be a rather hectic experience: I submitted two papers, both based on my PhD dissertation (which will most likely be defended just days before I leave for Phoenix), and one panel (to be co-arranged by Hallvard Moe). Both papers and the panel was accepted – great! The panel is entitled Researching Social Media – Methodological and Ethical Challenges panel and will feature presentations by Michael Zimmer, Eszter Hargittai, Cornelius Puschmann, Jean Burgess, Axel Bruns and Merja Mahrt. Zizi Papacharissi will serve as discussant. A great line-up indeed. Looking forward to Phoenix!
