A Round-Up of Our Recent Presentations

Posted In News, Publications - By On Monday, November 25th, 2013 With 0 Comments

The end-of-year conference season is over, and the various members of the Social Media Research Group are returning to QUT for a well-deserved summer break. This seems as good an excuse as any to round up our latest papers and presentations and show off the work we’ve done over the past few months – here they are, loosely organised by themes. Click through for the slides and (in some cases) audio:

‘Big Data’

Crisis Communication

News and Politics

Popular Culture


That should be enough for 2013! See you next year at a conference somewhere…
