Welcome to the Social Media Research Group!

The Middlesex Social Media Research Group was set up in 2014 to promote interdisciplinary approaches to research through acquiring new skills, sharing knowledge, and pursuing collaborative projects about social media. We aim to advance theoretical and methodological approaches to social media research through partnership with other academics in the field. We also aim to address opportunities and problems created by the rise of social media through collaboration with people in the arts, media, business, education, social services, politics, civil society and social enterprises.

The group includes members from across the university. It is currently led by Professor Jane Arthurs in the Department of Media. Contact j.arthurs@mdx.ac.uk.

The group’s activities have been supported by the Centre for Ideas and the School of Media and Performing Arts.
