Social Media and Politics Podcast on Protests and Demonstrations in Northern Ireland

Delighted to have spoken to Michael Bossetta (University of Copenhagen) for the latest Social Media and Politics Podcast 

In a wide-ranging discussion, we discussed my ongoing work on social media, parades and protests in Northern Ireland, case studies such as the union flag protests and the Ardoyne parade dispute and Brexit. Many thanks to Michael for inviting me on and for his insightful questions. If you haven’t checked it out already, I would thoroughly recommend the Podcast series for anyone interested in Digital Politics.

This is part of an ongoing project that Faith and I are working on – more details to come soon!
