I was asked some great questions at ECREA Communication and Democracy Annual Conference in Munich earlier this month. This prompted me to write a new blog post for the Voter Ecology Project’s website. If you’re interested in reading on our most recent fatigues and the evolution of political communication scholarship more broadly, click here. A full set of presentation slides is also available here.
I recently started blogging on online research and election issues for the Voter Ecology Project – read my first update “Turning the Pyramid Upside Down” here.
In June 2013, I joined the University of Glasgow’s Adam Smith Research Foundation (ASRF) as a postdoctoral research assistant. In this role, I will work with Prof. Andrew Hoskins and Prof. Sarah Oates (University of Maryland, College Park) on the ESRC-funded “Voter Ecology Project.” This research will examine the role of internet search in elections in established democracies (UK, U.S.), challenged democracies (Italy), and transitional states (Egypt).
