The University of Michigan is hosting a symposium on social media influencers at the University of Michigan, 2435 North Quad, on April 7-8, 2022, and will be available for remote participation for registered attendees. The event features a number of social media influencers, and those who study them, from two regions with the fastest growing social media user populations -- Continental Africa and South Asia.

The workshop brings together a range of professionals and scholars - dissidents, bureaucrats, artists, movie-stars, comedians, commentators, and industry professionals to explore the ways in which social media influencing is changing social, political, and cultural engagements.

The event is co-sponsored by the African Studies Center, Center for South Asian Studies, the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies, the School of Information, the Center for Ethics, Society, and Computing.
