All are welcome to attend.

Abstract:

Emoji in social media add more information than just a pictograph to accompany words or convey emotion. Emoji use related to communication about collective social events can provide additional insight about our collective identity and social interactions. This friday Melanie Swartz will be presenting preliminary results and welcomes your feedback of her analysis on emoji use in social media for a number of events ranging from national, religious, protests, marches, celestial events,  global scheduled events such as International Women’s Day, and more. We look forward to seeing you in person for an engaging discussion on Friday as this event will not be recorded or live streamed.
