Update: we finished our pilot phase and are well into the main body of research for the project. Our field ethnographers have gathered rich interviews that our data analysts are hard at work coding. This has lead to a much more solidified coding schema that is now well on its way to providing theoretical contributions to the study of populism (as well as descriptive and analytical ones).
From the partners, we would like to announce our plan to interview partners on the platform and code those interviews as another analytical layer to our research – comparing their theoretical orientations / analyses of populism to those of our informants. Their work will then form a part of the SSNA (and be visualisable as part of the network alongside those informant contributions). So please get in touch if you’re keen to talk about your work on the platform – and we’ll be reaching out too!
