Do you enjoy engaging in political commentary or debate on social media, or do you hate it? Are you an experienced online debater who knows your virtue signalling from your echo chamber, or do you still struggle to identify fake news?
In this webinar, University of Bedfordshire PhD researcher Elizabeth Bailey looks at how people have been participating and engaging with each other politically, for good or ill, in media that are still barely over a decade old, and discusses some of the factors which might be affecting this.
Social media is now accepted as being a major shaping factor in political events at home and abroad and you might have participated in debate over the Scottish or EU referendums, or the past two UK elections for instance.
Elizabeth is really looking forward to chatting with you, sharing some insights and learning about your own lived experience of political debate online.
Elizabeth Bailey is a PhD student at the University of Bedfordshire and currently works for Luton Borough Council. Before this, she worked in the Whitehall Civil Service for more than two decades She is volunteer political campaigner for two national UK charities and has a longstanding personal, professional and voluntary interest in the intersection of media, government and politics, public communications generally, and political discourse in the public sphere. Since childhood, she has been fascinated by how ‘ordinary’ people talk about politics.
This Webinar will be facilitated by Phuong Skovgaard.
