Within the framework of the HIVI project, related to the history of online virality and supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) (C20/SC/14758148), this conference, organised by Fred Pailler and Valérie Schafer (C²DH, University of Luxembourg), will analyse the role that platforms and diverse stakeholders (i.e., celebrities, entrepreneurs, companies, politicians, NGO, journalists, activists, users, etc.) play in the spread, diffusion, circulation or moderation and invisibilisation of digital content.
It will intertwine case study based approach and more theoretical ones, and question methods, audiences, formats, discourses, reception, etc. to better unfold the complexity of viral contents and the key notion of influence.
