Research project: Everyday Nationhood on the Web

Currently Active: 
Yes

This pilot project, funded by the Web Science Institute Stimulus Fund (University of Southampton), investigates views of non-elite Twitter users on immigration at the time of the lifting of work restrictions on Romanian and Bulgarian migrants in the UK, and what these views tell us about how these users define who can belong to the British nation, or who deserves to belong to the nation. It also examines processes by which information and communications on immigrants/immigration are created, disseminated and consumed by citizens via social media.
