Explores how influence, reputation, and academic identity are circulated and enacted within scholarly online networks. Both academia and social networks can be said to be ‘reputational economies’ (Willinksy, 2010), but while scholars and educators are increasingly exhorted to ‘go online,’ those who do often find that their work and efforts may not be visible or understood within institutional contexts. This presentation outlines an ethnographic research project detailing the ways in which networked scholarly reputations operate, circulate, and intersect with contemporary concepts of academic impact, and focuses on the uses of scholarly networks and the literacies required to understand them.
