I’m in the middle of this online course called Why We Post : The Anthropology of Social Media. The course is constructed based on a 15-month ethnographic work in fieldsites such as Brazil, Chile, industrial and rural China, England, Italy, Trinidad and Turkey. What’s super interesting about the course is that it does not only explore on the capabilities of the social media platforms, but also on the posted content (memes, selfies, photographs, text etc.) influenced by the culture of each fieldsites through topics such as politics, education, gender, commerce, privacy, and equality.
