ECR Network: Social Media and Academia

19 Feb, 2:30pm-4:30pm
Darwin LT3

Dr Nadine Muller
Technology is changing the way we access information, and how we communicate. Nowhere is this more apparent than in academia. Social media sites, such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and blogging platforms such as Blogger and Wordpress, are increasingly being used to raise profiles, to disseminate research, and to make links with potential collaborators.

Is it possible to embrace the new technology without compromising your integrity or short-selling your research? Dr Nadine Muller is a Lecturer in English Literature and Cultural History at Liverpool John Moores University, and has demonstrated how to use social media and blogs effectively. She has written on life as a New Academic, as well as highlighting her own research, and is followed widely on Twitter.

The event is free and open to all staff, and there'll be tea/coffee. Whilst this session is intended primarily for early career researchers (ECRs), more senior staff who are new to social media are also welcome. Do let me know if you plan to come along.

There will also be an opportunity to chat to Nadine informally at the ECR Social at the Dolphin in the evening, from 7pm. 


  1. Great post i must say and thanks for the information. Education is definitely a sticky subject. However, is still among the leading topics of our time. I appreciate your post and look forward to more.

  2. This is really a amazing post. I couldn't have asked for a much better post than this. I am literally very pleased with this and I just hope that I will keep on getting such amazing posts! Soma
