The Social Scholar seminar series

The Social Scholar is a series of public lunchtime seminars looking into the theme of social media. Each session includes a 20 minute presentation from an expert already using social media in the humanities followed by discussion and Q&A. In these sessions we will learn how to better use social media in a professional capacity and what the difficulties and issues are. The series will look at blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media services.

The seminars are free and open to all. Registration is not required. Use the search words 'social scholar' to find events on the SAS events calendar.
