Nicole Stremlau currently seeking two research assistants to join the project ConflictNet. This is a new 5-year project funded by the European Research Council (ERC) that examines the role of social media in conflict in Africa.  The project will focus on questions social media and migration away from conflict; of online hate speech and the perpetuation of violence; and the efforts by companies, governments and individuals to shape and extend the internet in Africa.  We will shortly be launching a new website for the project but in the meantime a summary is available here.
