Dr. Bianca C. Reisdorf visited the Centre for Social Informatics
As part of the bilateral agreement between the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Ljubljana and The Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, the Centre for Social Informatics hosted Dr. Bianca C. Reisdorf between 11 and 14 July 2019.
During her visit she met with Dr. Andraž Petrovčič and Dr. Darja Grošelj in order to discuss future research on the topic of proxy internet use and the importance of its exploration in cross-cultural contexts with different levels of internet skills and/or internet use practices.
The first empirical findings of their common work on this topic were shown recently at International Association for Media and Communication (IAMCR) conference in Madrid, where dr. Reisdorf gave a presentation entitled »Going online on behalf of someone else: Characteristics of internet users who act as proxy internet users«.
The bilateral agreement and exchange visits of investigators on this project have been funded by the Slovenian Research Agency.
