Dr Sofya Glazunova awarded a QUT Early Career Researcher grant

Congratulations to DMRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow Dr Sofya Glazunova for her QUT Early Career Researcher grant success! Dr Glazunova received funding for her project titled A cross-platform analysis of the digital communication of the Russian opposition during the 2022 Russia-Ukraine war.

In this project, Dr Glazunova produces the first comprehensive evaluation of information flows between opposition forces that communicate across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and VKontakte during the 2022 Russia-Ukraine war, detecting its leading elites and communities that most visibly contribute to pro-democratic political debates in Russia’s digital public sphere. The project helps policy-makers and expert communities to understand how to support the pro-democratic opposition in autocratic regimes via digital means.
