The TikTok Cultures Research Network has edited three Special Issue Journals:
“Research Perspectives on TikTok & Its Legacy Apps” in International Journal of Communication, Volume 15, 2021.
Edited by Jing Zeng, Crystal Abidin & Mike S. Schäfer.
The Special Issue was inspired by a panel put together for the 2020 International Communication Association (ICA) conference titled “Short-Form Parallel Universes: Affordances, Activity,
and Culture of TikTok and Douyin.”
“Cultures of TikTok in the Asia Pacific” in Media International Australia, Volume 186, Issue 1, 2023.
Edited by Crystal Abidin, Jin Lee & D. Bondy Valdovinos Kaye.
This Special Issue was based on our inaugural event “Cultures of TikTok in the Asia Pacific”, held in December 2020. Archives of this symposium, including video recordings, can be found here.
“TikTok & Social Movements” in Social Media + Society, Volume 9, Issue 1, 2023.
Edited by Jin Lee & Crystal Abidin.
This Special Issue draws from our forth event “TikTok and Social Movements”, held in September 2021. Archives of this symposium, including video recordings, can be found here.
