Personal Media: Advancing the Study of Communication, Relationships, and Social Technologies

Friday, 18 March 2022, 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. on Zoom

Over the last decade, engagement with technologies, from mobile phones to companion robots, has increased. Concurrently, these technologies are designed to engage us in more familiar social forms. This talk focuses on how emergent socio-technological phenomena can be studied to advance our understanding of both technologies and our interpersonal relationships.

ANDREW GAMBINO is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University. Andrew uses empirical methods to study communication, relationships, and technology. In his research, he examines how communication through and with social technologies both affects and reflects our interpersonal relationships.
