Research Interests

Dr. Domjan's research interests are focused on the iGen, closing the digital divide in education technology, the political nature of 'cancel culture' across the globe, the danger of selective empathy and the impact of weak digital citizneship skills. Social media use among heads of states and the rapid decline of state media influence. The discriminatory elevation and random support of youth activists - the problem with tokenism.
