Dr Robert Ackland presented on "Frames and Fields on Twitter" and ran a SocialMediaLab workshop at the Science of Networks in Communities (SONIC) Lab at Northwestern University.
“Frames and Fields on Twitter” focuses on understanding to what extent it is conceptually and empirically valid to regard protest activity on Twitter, such as the Occupy Wall Street movement, as an online activist field. Network analysis is used to examine two core aspects of field theory: the behavior of incumbents vs new entrants in response to a new issue or frame, and the dynamics of field formation.
The talk and workshop took place on May 10, 2016 at the SONIC Lab, Northwestern University, USA. Find streaming of full presentation in this link.
