  10th Annual Department of Communication Distinguished Lecture: Online Experiences of Marginalized Individuals.  
(Seminar/Conference)

When it first permeated homes, the Internet was touted as the great liberator. Today, it is clear that the Internet is neither a utopia nor an equitable agora. Social media have, however, provided millions of individuals unprecedented access to communicating with others through both private and public platforms. Novel and fulfilling ways of self-expression have emerged. People who are socially isolated or otherwise unsatisfied with their offline lives have developed meaningful social connections online. Although there have been innumerable benefits, there have also been considerable downsides, particularly for marginalized individuals. Stereotyping, discrimination, and harassment persist, and in some cases are exacerbated, through social media.
