Platform Discourses: A Critical Humanities Approach to the Texts, Images, and Moving Images Produced by Tech Companies

Project description

A scholarly analysis of social media

The emergence of social media is one of the most prominent technological advances of the last decade and one that has changed our world forever – in both good and bad ways. The social impact of today's platforms has attracted much attention from researchers. The EU-funded PLATFORM DISCOURSES project will conduct a systematic scholarly analysis of the discourses through which tech companies – from Google to Facebook and from Apple to Airbnb – seek to generate trust around their products. The project will present a critical framework to understand how tech companies not only disrupt traditional markets and transform people's practices, but also seek to reconfigure the stories through which people relate to themselves, others and their ecosystems.
