Notes

Abstract: Social networking and online spaces offer scholars venues for expanded interaction and alternate means for pursuing professional endeavors. They offer ways for expressing thoughts, ideas, asking questions and sharing information. This study examines the use of Twitter as a backchannel during academic conferences, focusing on the Digital Humanities community. It explores the relationship between participatory technologies and scholarly practices to better understand how scholars connect digitally and the implications for such avenues of discourse in the pursuit of scholarship.
