- ItemCivic engagement in Canada: a critical analysis of social media, care for others, and gender on volunteering and donating(2019) Friesen, Kelsey; Kurjata, Andie; Boulianne, ShelleyCanadians continually donate their time and money to charitable and non-profit organizations. Donating and volunteering are forms of civic engagement which many choose to engage in to improve the lives of others. Existing literature regarding civic engagement lacks focus on general volunteering and donating as opposed to event-specific volunteering and donating. We used Alberta survey data (n=1208) gathered by the University of Alberta\xe2\x80\x99s Population Research Laboratory to explore relationships between social media, care for others, and gender on civic engagement.

- ItemGenuine concern or lip service: sexual violence policies in Canadian post-secondary institutions(2019) Friesen, Kelsey; Nelund, AmandaPost-secondary institutions are intended to be safe spaces where students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to experience and engage in critical thought and discussion. When critical thought and discussion occurs, it may raise awareness, give context, and challenge assumptions which have potential to shift the narrative around big issues. Although post-secondary institutions foster the intellectual growth of its members, they are also environments where its members face sexual violence. While sexual violence has always been present in these institutions, it is only more recently that sexual violence along with its impacts on victims received closer attention from media. This media attention resulted in a public pressure which demands post-secondary institutions to create and implement policies and educational programming that specifically addresses sexual violence. Other policies and processes, however, such as Student Codes of Conduct the criminal justice system, already designate forms of sexual violence as intolerable or illegal. Due to the massive public pressure and demand for policies which specifically address sexual violence and sexual violence only, it is crucial to examine how or if these policies add or contribute to the policy or legislative context in Canada. To examine these policies, this research investigates campus community members’ knowledge of and perceptions of sexual violence policies in the context of Canadian post-secondary institutions.

- ItemLa mésinformation sur les plateformes de médias sociaux et dans différents pays(2021) Boulianne, Shelley; Belland, Stephanie; Tenove, Chris; Friesen, KelseyL’exposition des citoyens à la mésinformation en ligne et leur réaction constituent des sujets de préoccupation importants, surtout lorsque des informations intentionnellement fausses sont susceptibles de nuire à la confiance en des procédés démocratiques clés (p. ex. les élections) et de perturber les efforts de santé publique pour la gestion de la pandémie de COVID-19, causant ainsi des décès évitables. En 2019 et en 2021, nous avons collecté des données d’enquête dans quatre pays : le Canada, la France, le Royaume-Uni et les États-Unis.
- ItemMisinformation across social media platforms and across countries(2021) Boulianne, Shelley; Belland, Stephanie; Tenove, Chris; Friesen, KelseyCitizens’ exposure and reaction to online misinformation are important concerns, particularly when intentionally false information can undermine faith in key democratic processes (e.g., elections) and disrupt public health efforts to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in unnecessary deaths. In 2019 and 2021, we collected survey data in four countries: Canada, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
- ItemOne night of pleasure or risk: hook-up culture and sexual violence(2018) Friesen, Kelsey; Thurairajah, KalyaniSexual violence on post-secondary campuses is highly problematic. While sexual violence has been recognized as a health issue and social concern for many years, it is only recently that sexual violence and its concerning effects of victimization have merited closer attention from media. This media attention has, subsequently, resulted in a public outcry and has forced post-secondary institutions to implement sexual violence policies and programming. However, it has also led to an explosion of studies within academia. One of the areas that has not been studied extensively in the past but is increasing today is the study of uncommitted sexual encounters—otherwise known as hook-ups—in connection to sexual violence. Many studies concerning sexual violence discuss items that place an individual at higher risk for experiencing sexual violence, and one of the many risks is engagement in hook-ups. While engagement in hook-ups increases the risk of sexual violence victimization, it is questionable as to whether or not students are aware of this reality. With today's attitudes surrounding relationships and intimacy, it is difficult to measure this, as, according to some, engagement in hook-up culture simply fills one's desire for pleasure. In other words, perhaps the thoughts around engaging in hook-ups are less focused on the idea that there may be a risk for violence. Because it is unknown as to whether or not students conceptualize engagement in hook-up culture with sexual violence, this study seeks to discover the extent to which students conceptualize connections between sexual violence and hook-ups.
