A new article written by Damian Maye and Julie Urquhart has just been published in the Journal of Rural Studies that seeks to examine the online discourses regarding sustainable meat consumption by analysing a range of ‘hashtags’.
Three more articles have been accepted for CCRI researchers. Read more about the successes of Phil Staddon, Nenia Micha and Matt Reed.
CCRI’s Matt Reed took part in a study and co-authored a paper which has been published in Methods in Ecology and Evolution, which is free to access online.
CCRI’s Matt Reed is lined up to give a presentation as part of the University of Gloucestershire’s Research Methods Seminar Series on Wednesday 26th October, when he will be talking about qualitative methods for understanding how Twitter is used in political campaigning.
While researching UKIP attitudes to renewable energy projects in rural Britain, Matt Reed uncovered how social media is being used to promote climate change scepticism. In his latest published paper, he demonstrates how UKIP is part of a wider wave of ‘anti-reflexive movements’, promoting distrust and doubt to further certain political ends.
CCRI Senior Research Fellow, Matt Reed, is a regular blogger writing on food, community and politics at his blog, ‘the ruralist’. Matt’s latest post, ‘Going Digital’, reflects on how the CCRI is addressing the challenge of getting its latest research findings out in the public domain as quickly as possible.
