Dating and hook-up apps, digital publics, and the COVID-19 pandemic

Wednesday, December 2, 2020 18:00to19:30

PhD candidate and research assistant Christopher Dietzel is presenting his research on dating apps during the COVID-19 pandemic at an event that is part of this year's Digital Intimacies 6.0 conference

In this interactive session, attendees will partake in participatory engagement with the app materials Chris and his colleagues gathered during the first three months of North American quarantine to explore scholarly themes and digital intimacies. Combined with non-participant observation of app updates and new features, these materials encompass a range of prescribed behaviours, technical solutions, and discourses related to COVID-19.
