Social Media Content for Stephanie Strickland's "True North"
As with all Live Stream Traversals, the undergraduate researchers had notes from Grigar's research on hand to feed content into the social media conversations. They also took photographs, mixing in prepared research on the work and its criticism with observations, comments, and interactions with other participants. While Strickland performed her Traversal, Grigar moderated the live YouTube chat and later the Q&A session.We used three locations on Facebook to post for this event: 1) the site Grigar set up in 2013 for the Pathfinders project, 2) the Electronic Literature Organization's page with over 1600 members, and 3) Grigar's personal site. ELL Team members with a Facebook page also posted to their personal sites.
