The Anglo-Ethiopian Society
Lecture - Ethiopia online: Mapping online debates ahead of the 2015 elections
Iginio Gagliardone (Oxford) & Matti Pohjonen (SOAS)
Tuesday 14th October 2014
5.00 pm in the Seminar Room, at the African Studies Centre, 13 Bevington Road, OX2 6LH - The seminars are free and no prior registration is required.
This lecture is part of the Horn of Africa Seminar Series at the University of Oxford which brings together students and scholars interested in examining the region from a multidisciplinary and comparative perspective. For this series the seminar will look at a variety of issues, from the prospects for the National Dialogue in Sudan to the histories of conflict in southern Somalia and counter-insurgency in northern Kenya. By hosting lectures by experienced researchers alongside post-graduates, and by mixing academic and policy research, we hope to come to a shared, factually informed and politically relevant understanding of trends in the region.
This lecture is also part of the 'Media and Society in the Horn' seminar series, a collaboration with the Programme in Comparative Media Law and Policy (PCMLP).
More details about the work that has been carried out 'Mapping and Analysing Hate Speech Online: Opportunities and Challenges for Ethiopia', together with a downloadable working paper on the subject, can be found on the news section of the PCMLP website.
