The University of Westminster has launched a new Centre for Social Media Research (CSMR) and a new Masters degree in Social Media.
 
The CSMR will conduct and coordinate research into social, cultural, and political-economic aspects of social media, and will also explore how social media might transform the practice of research itself.
 
The centre will be led by Professor David Gauntlett, and the MA programme by Professor Christian Fuchs and Professor Graham Meikle, who both joined the School of Media, Arts and Design in February 2013.
 
Westminster’s MA in Social Media will welcome its first students in September 2013.
 
“We’ll be using social media to explore theories and concepts,” said Professor Meikle. “Students will be blogging about course readings, posting online videos about ideas from their modules, sharing photo essays. It’s a rigorous theoretical degree and also an exciting and creative course.”
 
The new centre will launch itself with an international conference, Social Media, in London on 2-3 September 2013. The conference will be the fourth in the University of Westminster’s Transforming Audiences series, held every two years since 2007, attracting key scholars and researchers from around the world.
