Description
Join Megan Metzger, Wisconsin Russia Project Postdoctoral Fellow at CREECA, as she explores how social media may shape information exchange during protest: by changing who can exchange information widely. We know from previous research that non-locals sometimes represent a significant portion of the people exchanging information about protest online; Metzger explores key questions about the effects of non-local participation on recent political protest in Ukraine.
