Social Networks Collaborative: Strengthening Human Relationships, 2008-2010

The Social Networks Collaborative convenes an interdisciplinary group of scholars and leaders trying to resolve these questions in their own disciplines, including education, new media/communications, computer science, rhetoric/writing studies, family and child studies and architecture. The collaborative is working to produce a series of white papers, to be combined into a publishable anthology, about the design, development, and implications of social cyberspace networks today and methods for researching them that move beyond typical disciplinary boundaries. We seek to advance the impact of our work on our fields as well as stimulate field-shaping ideas that contribute to an interdisciplinary conversation between the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Through several public events and an interactive Web site, we are working to identify, stimulate, and promote cross-disciplinary conversations, collaborative grant applications, and academic program partnerships.

Conveners: Christine Greenhow (Learning Technologies, College of Education and Human Development), Lee Anderson (School of Architecture, College of Design) , Joan Hughes (Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Texas), John Logie (Department of Rhetoric/Writing Studies, College of Liberal Arts), Nora Paul (School of Journalism and Mass Communication, College of Liberal Arts), Loren Terveen (Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Institute of Technology), and Susan Walker (Family & Parent Education, College of Education and Human Development).
