CREECA Fall Lecture Series
"Social Media, Non-Locals and Information During EuroMaidan"
Thursday, October 5, 2017
206 Ingraham Hall
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.
