Voices of Outrage

My doctoral research explored the role of online partisan media in contemporary American politics and society, with an empirical focus on “below-the-line” commentary on a conservative news and opinion website during the 2016 US presidential election. I situated my approach in terms of the ongoing debate regarding the nature and extent of polarisation in American political life, which has assumed a new vibrancy in the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election.

My doctoral research was funded by an NUI Travelling Studentship in Media and Communications. Read more about my research.
