    Social Media as Everyday Practice: Reflections on Multiplicitous~Becoming~Activist

    Author:

Abstract

Highlighting my own daily social media practices as an example, I will unpack the various tensions and possibilities associated with being a scholar and social media activist as everyday practice. In what I refer to as multiplicitous~ becoming~activist, I harness ideas from Luis Urrieta, Jr. to challenge notions of social justice and activism identities as static, but rather as active processes that can and should be enacted within distributed social media spaces.

Keywords: professional identity, Social Media, activism
