2016–17 Planning, participation and social media platforms

Scientific consultant and part of grant writing team. We want to explore to what extent social media platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) have become important intermediaries in public debate and discussion relating to urban transformations. We are specifically interested in cases where transformations have been brought about through local authority regeneration schemes. We are focusing on the cycling and road infrastructure scheme known as ‘Mini-Holland’ in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. We are interested in the interplay between, on the one hand, the way social media platforms work, and on the other hand, how these platforms are used, by both ‘ordinary’ contributors as well as professionals and activists. Funded by EPSRC, led by Dr Susan Moore (University College London). £29,075
