She is currently leading an ERC project about the construction of values in digital spheres.  Prof. Shifman's work has been published in venues such as Journal of Communication, American Sociological Review, New Media and Society and Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication. She is a former research fellow at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford, and a former visiting scholar at the USC Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism.
