11-1-10: “Cyberbullying”

October 29, 2010 at 2:31 pm 2 comments

Nathan Jurgenson and P.J. Rey: These two sociologists may specialize in social media issues, but they still know how to interact face-to-face.

Megan Meier. Pheobe Prince. Tyler Clementi. Every few months, another teenager makes the news for a suicide after a bout of online harassment. It’s earned its own term now: “cyberbullying. ”

We’ve invited our regular social media analysts back to discuss this disturbing new fact of 21st century life. Sheilah talks to Nathan Jurgenson and P.J. Rey, Ph.D. students in sociology at the University of Maryland College Park and bloggers at Cyborgology, about why “cyberbullying” may be a misnomer, and how projects like It Gets Better may be building “cybersupport.”

Make sure to tune into Midday on Thursday – Dan Rodricks and his guests will be talking about LGBT issues at local colleges, and you can call in.
