Lee Humphreys is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication at Cornell University.
Lee studies the social uses and perceived effects of communication technology. Her research has explored mobile phone use in public spaces, emerging norms on mobile social networks, and the privacy and surveillance implications of location-based services. Lee is focused on how people integrate communication technology in their everyday lives in order to facilitate identity management and social interaction.
Her upcoming book published by MIT Press entitled, The Qualified Self: Social Media and the Cataloging of Everyday Life is due out in Spring 2018. The book historicizes contemporary social media to help us reveal what’s really new about social media.
In this episode, Thrive LOUD brings you 'back to school' as Professor Humphreys shares some of her knowledge and expertise.
