On 23 October, part of the NEWSFLOWS team will make their first appearance at a conference. Mónika will participate in the ‘Addressing Challenges and Opportunities in Online Extremism Research: An Interdisciplinary Perspective’ workshop, which is part of the 24th ACM Conference on Computer-supported cooperative work and social computing.

More specifically, she will present some early findings and observations concerning the analysis of 174 Dutch-language public Telegram chats and channels as well as address some key issues with regards to creating open-access tools for scholars to obtain and analyze data from low moderated but increasingly popular platforms such as Telegram. The abstract is featured on the workshop’s website.
