Article, Reset: Social Science Research on the Internet
Dr. Dina Pinsky's current research project, "Flirtation 2.0" is an ethnographic study of adolescent peer interactions as mediated through social media. Using feminist and symbolic-interactionist frameworks, Dr. Pinsky explores narratives about on-line flirting and analyzes new social codes for digital interaction embedded in gender ideologies. Her forthcoming book details the ever widening place flirtation occupies in the cultural consciousness of young people. Dr. Pinsky's previous research has focused on sex work stigma, Jewish feminist activists, and ethnographic research methodologies.
