Today, The Annex talks to Matt Rafalow (Google) about how social inequalities in education and technology persist after all students gain access to devices and the Internet. His new book, Digital Divisions: How Schools Create Inequality in the Tech Era (University of Chicago) presents the results of an ethnographic study that investigates how teachers encourage different kinds of digital engagement to the children of different social classes and races. Guest hosts Ellen Meiser (University of Hawaii) and Nga Than (CUNY Graduate Center).

Today’s episode of The Annex discusses Internet mob justice in the face of unsolved crimes. We ask what happens when the Internet tries to solve an urgent crime through collaborations on social media and Internet forums.

Our guest is Penn Pantumsinchai from the University of Hawaii. Penn published “Armchair detectives and the social construction of falsehoods: an actor–network approach” in Information, Communication, and Society. She also co-hosts a sociology podcast called The Social Breakdown, which we covered earlier this year.
