SMRG Guest Presentation: Social Media, Politics and Journalism in Germany

Posted In News, Projects - By On Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 With 0 Comments

At QUT, we’ve just hosted a research visit by Prof. Christoph Neuberger and Asst.Prof. Christian Nuernbergk from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, with whom we have an ongoing research collaboration that investigates the use of Twitter during the 2013 Australian and German federal elections – you may recall our coverage of the Australian election campaign from September last year.

As part of their visit, Christoph and Christian also kindly agreed to update us on their wider research activities, and presented a Creative Industries Faculty research seminar last Friday, which we streamed live via YouTube. Below is a video of their presentation – unfortunately our camera ended up overexposing the image and so the slides aren’t very well visible, but they’re also available as a separate document here.
