Dr. Felicia Wu Song is a cultural sociologist studying the impact of digital technologies on identity, community, and relationships. She is Associate Professor and Chair of the Sociology and Anthropology Department at Westmont college. After previously teaching at Louisiana State University’s Manship School for Mass Communication, she brings a keen interest in the rapidly evolving social media industry and how the adoption of digital technology is fundamentally altering the landscape of the family, religion, advertising, social movements, and mass media. Her current research on “mommy bloggers” involves participant observation at social media conferences and interviews with women invested in blogging and social media as a profession. When she is not teaching or researching, she enjoys experiencing food and watching ‘Chef’s Table’ with her husband, and reading children’s books with her two kids.
