The Digital Ethnography Research Centre (DERC) presents a symposium about transnational mobility in the Asia Pacific.
Social media has changed the landscape of communication. We are now able to communicate with family, friends and acquaintances en masse and privately, constantly and in real time wherever we are and in whatever we are doing. More than just presenting us with various ways of communicating with each other, social media has also expanded the social groups we communicate with. While social media is a platform of choice for everyday communication with people we know, it also allows us to broadcast our thoughts, opinions, ideas and ideologies with a broad audience – across state and national lines.
Discussing the intersections of transnational mobility with new communication technologies and their impact on familial and social networks and relations, this symposium brings together cutting edge research from scholars across disciplines.
Keynote address: Prof Brenda Yeoh, National University of Singapore
Convenor: Dr Catherine Gomes
