Expert(s) for : Social networks
- Natural logic and discursive ethics
- Virtual communities and social networks
- Digital technologies in social and political intervention
- Networked communication
My research interests concern the development of three dimensions: epistemological, theoretical and methodological. Epistemological and theoretical communication issues are dealt with from a critical constructivist approach, anchored in the contributions of genetic epistemology and the social theory of communicative action, with a focus on the logic of language and discursive ethics. Methodologically, I adopt argumentative perspectives for analyzing multi-language discourse (as on the Internet), integrating natural logic and social and political research-intervention processes. The field sites that interest me are those related to networked collectivities such as virtual communities and social networks.
- Information and communication technologies
- Young adults
- Forms of attachment
- Social networks
- Collective action
My research interests have to do mainly with the everyday practices of teenagers and young adults and information and communication technologies (ICTs). More specifically, I am interested in meaningful practices and forms of attachment in connection with these technologies, and with their place and role in identity construction. More recently, I have been studying how these daily practices, including the mobilization of social networks, can be used for collective action. Methodologically, I emphasize ethnographic approaches and so-called “creative” approaches, combined with a specific interest in methodological questions relating to field research practices (research process, reflexivity, researcher-subject relationship, ethics, etc.).
