Prof. Sarita Schoenebeck

Most social media sites sanction online harassment by removing content or banning users. However, these approaches largely write the targets of online harassment out of the justice-seeking process. If a person is harassed on social media, they are given no opportunity for acknowledgement or reparation. This talk will discuss how theories of justice can help social media sites to better support people who are targets of online harassment.

Dr. Schoenebeck is an Associate Professor in the School of Information at the University of Michigan. She directs the Living Online Lab and co-directs the Social Media Research Lab. Her research
focuses on promoting more equitable and inclusive experiences online in domains ranging from online harassment to gender equity to children’s privacy. Her research has been covered in global media including the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR, and elsewhere.

This is the fourth in a six-lecture series. The subject is Social Media Research: What We Know Now. The next lecture will be February 5, 2020. The title is: Why We Use Social Media: Evolution, Neuroscience, and Problematic Use.
