Presentations at European Symposium Series on Societal Challenges 2019

Hywel, Tristan and Kathie all attended the recent European Symposium Series on Societal Challenges focusing on polarisation and radicalisation in Zurich, Switzerland. Each presented their work to the interdisciplinary audience.

Hywel presented his recent work with Iain looking at how politically interested Twitter users engage with hashtags and form tribes around the Brexit debate.

Tristan presented his recent work studying the habits of Twitter users sharing content around the climate change debate and the stark levels of polarisation found among the choice of source by different users.

Kathie presented her recent work exploring the conversation around climate change on Reddit, in particular how different user groups focus on different aspects of the established science or the debate for political intervention.
