Research Assistant: Youth & Digital Life. Ms. Leah Plunkett is seeking a Research Assistant for the spring 2021 semester to help her with the next phase of her “sharenting” research (how parents, grandparents, teachers & other trusted adults share kids’ private info digitally, without their kids’ knowledge or consent– a longer convo about sharenting available here). Ms. Plunkett is looking into the images (and possibly other info) from actual kids that Q-Anon and other conspiracy theorists may be using in their “save the children” or other propaganda, as well as the broader interplay between sharenting and the anti-vaccination and similar social movements based on misinformation, disinformation, lies, and dangerous propaganda. To apply, please email with a brief expression of interest, any relevant background, and a current CV.
