Exploring Digital Practices among Young Migrants | Lecture
Dr. Koen Leurs is a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the department of Media and Communications, London
School of Economics and Political Science (UK). In his lecture “Digital Throwntogetherness and Transnational Affective Capital: Exploring Digital Practices among Young Migrants”, Koen Leurs will compare digital practices of urban ethnic minority youth living in London with those of Somali refugee youth in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Leurs argues that digital throwntogetherness and transnational affective capital are helpful in accounting for general
online experience and in particular the micro-politics of association.
