In this third webinar, we will explore the challenges and opportunities of algorithmic (in)visibility for Latin American immigrant TikTokers. We will delve into the ways in which their content creation processes reflect their literacies with this multimodal platform. Participants will engage in reflections about the social, political, and cultural implications of migrant storytelling practices online.
