Cassie Hays, Assistant Professor, Sociology
Cassie received funding for her course, Power, Politics, and New Media which challenges students to interrogate the role and power of new media in the formation of national identities, global assemblages, international information flows, legal structures, and social change.  The students are asked to confront traditional research methods by conducting what might be called a Twitter ethnography.
