Jessie Daniels, professor of urban public health, Graduate Center and Hunter College/CUNY. Professor Daniels will discuss how the emergence of digital media, particularly blogs, represents a new mode of civic participation -- one that holds the potential to destabilize old hierarchies, but can also reinscribe hegemonic discourses of gender and race. Professor Daniels is author of White Lies (1997) and Cyber Racism (2009). Her book Google Bombs, Astroturf and Cloaked Sites, which examines propaganda in the digital era, is forthcoming from Routledge. She blogs with Joe Faegin at RacismReview and is a lead researcher on the Social Justice Sexuality Project.
