Mainsah, Henry

Researcher

I am a media scholar  studying the way young people use social media in their everyday lives. Through ethnographic methods I focus mainly on the way social network technologies are shaping society. I lecture on subjects such as qualitative research methods, youth culture, media theory, and cultural identities. My current research focuses on how social media design can be used to change the way young people participate in civic life.

I received my PhD from the Department of Media and Communication, University of Oslo. Buzzwords in my research world include: social media, identity, design, youth, cultural studies, learning, ethnography, race, gender, class, ethnicity.

I am currently the coordinator of the AHO PhD school and a researcher attached to the delTA research project at the Centre for Design Research.
