About the Project
The communication within and between these communities will be studied to understand the spread of cultural and linguistic innovation and how information and political ideas travel along these networks. For example, we are interested in studying the relationship between the core and the periphery, like London and the North of England or Sydney and Western Australia, answering questions like: How do the concerns of people in the periphery reach decision and policy makers in the core? How does culture like news, memes and hashtags spread around these networks? What biases do people in the core have about the periphery and vice-versa?
This will advance our knowledge on how information spreads and provide tools to magnify marginalised voices. The ideal student for this project will have both a keen interest in social and political issues as well as a strong technical background which they will build on in this project, becoming experts in NLP, network analysis and deep learning techniques.
