The Project

As a final project for the course “Selfies, Social Movements, and Fake News: Media Anthropology Today,” students created social media accounts corresponding to different mythological creatures. Students interviewed a number of people concerning norms of use for several social media platforms, then considered characteristics of their chosen mythical creature to determine how they might use this platform within these norms (or outside of them).
