SOCIAL NETWORK SITES AND SOCIAL SCIENCE

Description
The last few years have witnessed an explosive increase in the use of social networking sites. Today there are over 500 million on Facebook, and 100 million on QQ - the Chinese equivalent, as well as Orkut and Twitter. The primary purpose of this research project is to determine the nature of these sites and assess the challenge they represent to assumptions at the core of social science with regard to the decline in social relations, including the degree to which these sites have been appropriated to alleviate the negative impact of this decline. It will also focus on trends including the shift to older and less affluent users, and key consequences such as the impact on migrants and on separated families which rely on such communications. It will assess recent academic debates regarding the consequence of social networks for political action and activism, the nature of privacy and the public domain. But the research method is holistic and the seven proposed books will include a general re-thinking of core social science theory in the light of this phenomenon as well as monographs on more specific trends in usage and an overall assessment of social and welfare implications. Research has mainly been on the earlier users, mainly college students and focused on the US. But recent trends suggest future growth in older populations and in middle income regions such as Brazil and Turkey. The research consists of 15 months intensive ethnographic participation and observation, appropriate given the intimate nature of these communications. There will be seven ethnographies all based in small town sites. Some aimed at demographic breadth in China, India, Brazil and Turkey others at depth in Romania, Trinidad and the UK. The study will also include long term online participation in the social networking sites themselves with 150 informants from each country. The intensity of ethnographic depth will be matched by a commitment to comparative analysis and generalisation.

Media Literacy for Unaccompanied Refugee Youth - A Path to Integration

Description
According to Eurostat, 2015 saw 90,000 unaccompanied minor asylum seekers register in the EU. Refugee children pose considerable policy challenges: their integration in Europe is of utmost importance. Studies show that while refugee children have IT competences, they lack the ability to make critical media choices, and make informed decisions regarding their well-being. This project builds on the IT knowledge of young refugees in order to further their integration by developing media literacy pedagogic tools. Media literacy education is essential for empowering citizenship, for gaining skills to become drivers of economic growth, and not least to prevent radicalization. Media literacy, a necessary aspect of lifelong learning, enables young people to participate civically, to overcome disadvantage and to represent marginalized and missing voices. For developing these pedagogic tools, the Fellow will first research how unaccompanied minor refugees use digital technology and social media through fieldwork carried out in 3 EU countries. In the second research phase, the Fellow will conduct participatory action research (PAR) in collaboration with an NGO which specializes in PAR with refugee youth. These results will be used to design teaching materials for youth workers and teachers. The project is unique because it brings together the disciplines of education, media literacy and migration studies for offering solutions to a matter of pressing urgency: the integration of unaccompanied minor refugees. This project will serve to widen the professional horizon of the Fellow. She will acquire specific research skills (digital ethnography, participant action research, educational tools design) and transferable skills (PhD supervision, leadership, editorial skills, managing large-scale events). The project will lay the foundations for the Fellow's long-term career goals, and she will be propelled to the forefront of media literacy research.

Knowledge migration flows in education hubs: Mobile students enrolled at Indian and British branch campuses in the United Arab Emirates

Description
The provision of higher education is a key priority for countries around the world, given that knowledge production, innovation and skills are crucial for thriving societies and economies. Even though the number of university enrollments is forecast to rise by 21 million between 2011 and 2020, many countries are struggling to meet demand. Thus different types of knowledge migration are emerging, more students are studying abroad and institutions are establishing offshore branch campuses. Research has been conducted on international student migration and transnational education, but nothing is known about the intersection of these two literatures, i.e. instances when both students and institutions cross international borders. EduHubMig addresses the paucity on this topic through the study of international students enrolled at British and Indian branch campuses in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Statistical analyses of secondary data and an online survey will identify the characteristics and size of this under-studied young migrant group. In addition, a range of qualitative research methods, such as in-depth interviews with students and other stakeholders (n=130), an institutional ethnography of offshore universities and a netnography of the website materials and social media, will uncover the various ways in which different actors shape knowledge flows within education hubs. EduHubMig will enable the Experienced Researcher to develop important new research skills and enhance her career development. The project will provide intensive training and facilitate knowledge exchange between the Experienced Researcher and the colleagues at Utrecht University with whom she shares research interests. The training plan will be closely monitored by her supervisor and supported by dedicated academic and administrative colleagues. The research and excellent training integrated in EduHubMig will help the Experienced Researcher accomplish her career objective of a tenure-track position.

Syrian Imaginations of Europe

Description
Refugees’ attempts to flee to a certain country are usually preceded by imaginations about possible destination countries. These imaginations not only contribute to refugees’ decisions where to seek asylum but also have an effect on how refugees experience realities when they eventually arrive in the destination country. The research project ‘SYRMAGINE – Syrian Imaginations of Europe’ focusses on how Europe is imagined by Syrian refugees settling in Syria’s neighbouring countries and examines how refugees’ imaginations affect their attitudes to seek asylum in European countries. SYRMAGINE understands “geographical imaginations” of Europe as subjective human conceptions of a geographical location and stresses the differences between “imagined regions” and reality. The project adopts an interdisciplinary mixed-method approach combining a large sample of individual surveys, semi-directive interviews and an online ethnography in two recipient and transit countries of Syrian refugees in the Middle East, Lebanon and Turkey. SYRMAGINE contributes to the academic literature on the active role of imaginations in refugees’ decision-making. From a policy perspective, it responds to one of the key priorities of the Horizon 2020 work programme 2016-2017, which is to investigate the governance of migration and asylum. The research is highly time relevant due to the surge of Syrian asylum application in Europe in the last years: Between April 2011 and June 2016, more than one million Syrians have applied for asylum in Europe (UNHCR 2016). The research project has the following three objectives: 1) to investigate the relation between refugees’ imaginations and decision-making and to study how the present country of residence compares to Europe as a destination choice, 2) to examine how refugees inform themselves about social and political realities in European countries and 3) to use these findings to contribute to the development of evidence-based asylum and integration policies.

Security System for language and image analysis

Description
Project Slándáil will demonstrate a cost-effective and ethically-correct way in which social media information can be used by an emergency management system. The social media landscape consists of a range of digitized documents in a variety of formats, updated by a diverse and geographically distributed people and organisations. During an emergency, authorities use websites and the population, empowered by social media systems, can broadcast for help or to inform others of their well-being. The burden of search and interpretation in the social media space, however, is largely on the end-users that is the authorities and the citizens. Information obtained during emergencies may contain personal details and the details may or not be correct – there are no protocols for dealing with the ethical and factual provenance of such data. Social media users deploy different modalities of communications, including language, visual icons, and associated meta data. Human beings integrate the information in different modality seamlessly to infer meaning and to make decisions. There are no systems that (a) could aggregate the information in different modalities, and (b) deal with multi-lingual communications during an emergency. Project Slándáil is collaboration of emergency operatives, academics, ethics- and security-oriented NGO and four SMEs. Their common purpose is to make maximum ethical use of the information available in the social media to enhance the performance of emergency management systems. The Project will undertake research in text and image analysis, in ethical and factual provenance of data, together with SMEs specialising in selling systems for social media monitoring and for emergency monitoring. There are experts in human multi-lingual human communication working in the team. This is an Irish-led, Italian, German and British collaboration which will deliver next generation of emergency management systems.

Migration und Hasskommentare in sozialen Medien in kulturvergleichender Perspektive

Principal investigator Dietrich Klakow (Principal Investigator ), Christian Schemer (Principal Investigator ), Angeliki Monnier (Cooperation Partner)
Description
In westlichen Gesellschaften geht die Migrationsfrage oft mit erhöhter öffentlicher Angst einher und führt zu einem signifikanten Anstieg von Hasskommentaren gegen Migranten. Soziale Medien scheinen dafür ein fruchtbarer Boden zu sein. Mit Blick auf die soziale Dimension von Hasskommentaren untersucht das Projekt M-PHASIS die Muster von Hass in nutzergenerierten Inhalten über Migration. Um die Entstehung und Verbreitung von Hass in nutzergenerierten Inhalten in Deutschland und Frankreich zu verstehen, verfolgt das Projekt folgende Ziele:1. Das Verständnis und die Bewertung von Hasskommentaren durch die Betrachtung multipler Merkmale des Phänomens voranzubringen (lexikalische, syntaktische und Kontext-Facetten) und explizite sowie implizite Formen zu berücksichtigen.2. Ein Forschungsprotokoll zur Erkennung von Hass in Text zu entwickeln und diesen im Hinblick auf seine Referenten (d.h. mit Hasskommentaren assoziierten Motive) und den gewählten Repräsentationen sowie seine Ausbreitungscharakteristika zu klassifizieren.3. Methoden zur Erkennung von Hass im Hinblick auf Validität, Reliabilität und interkulturelle Äquivalenz zu verbessern.4. Die Verbreitung von Hasskommentaren und deren Entstehungsbedingungen (z.B. Plattformen, auf denen Hasskommentare erscheinen, Homogenität des nutzergeniertes Umgebungskontextes, journalistische Intervention) in Frankreich und Deutschland zu vergleichen.5. Hassbeispiele in sozialen Medien zu annotieren und zu archivieren, um sie zum Projektende der Forschungsgemeinschaft für Sekundäranalysen zur Verfügung zu stellen.Unsere Forschungshypothesen gehen davon aus: • dass Hasskommentare in sozialen Medien gegen Migranten kontextabhängig sind. Hasskommentare sind eingebettet in Themenkontexte, mehr oder weniger unterstützende Medien und soziokulturelle Unterschiede. Vor diesem Hintergrund muss ihre Verbreitung analysiert und interpretiert werden.• dass sich Hasskommentare auf verschiedene Arten manifestieren, die sich systematisieren lassen. Sie können aufgrund ihrer expliziten linguistischen Merkmale verstanden werden, können aber ebenso implizit sein und auf subtilem Weg ausgedrückt werden. Das Projekt untersucht daher, welche Arten von Kontexten welche Arten von Hasskommentaren hervorbringen. M-PHASIS verfolgt einen interdisziplinären Ansatz und strebt an, Resultate computergestützter Verarbeitung von Hasskommentaren in sozialen Medien weiter zu nutzen. Die Erkenntnisse werden die Erstellung einer Software-App ermöglichen, die Hasskommentare automatisch erkennen und/oder blockieren kann. Außerdem werden im Projekt erstellte Ressourcen der Forschungsgemeinschaft mittels Open-Access-Plattformen zur Verfügung gestellt. Automatische Tools zur Erfassung von Hasskommentaren aus sozialen Medien werden ebenfalls veröffentlicht. Die wissenschaftlichen Entwicklungen des Projekts werden mittels eines Web-basierten Demonstrators validiert.

Summarisation and Sentiment Analysis for Evolving Multilingual Media Content

Description
News aggregators gather thousands of news articles every day from across the world and cluster them into news stories comprising large numbers of articles about the same event. This is even augmented by the increasing amount of information in social media (e.g., Twitter, Facebook) where mass opinions about news events can be monitored. A promising way to reduce this bulk of highly redundant data is offered by the language technologies known as multi-document text summarisation and sentiment analysis. A major problem is that news articles are in many languages while current technology has mostly dealt with English, and the question of how current research can be applied in a heavily multilingual context has barely been addressed. Most multi-document summarisation research has focused on the news domain and MediaGist will do likewise in order to build on existing techniques and resources. However, summarising posts in social media, representing complementary and unbiased information, will be considered as well. Media professionals, however, will want to go beyond summaries from sources in one language and consider how news events are reported in other countries and from other perspectives. Identifying differences in opinion towards entities and events may provide some clues as the disagreements in reporting across languages. MediaGist will perform multilingual sentiment analysis and will thus make possible the generation of summaries that reveal these disagreements. The goal of MediaGist is to make significant advances in multilingual research so as to extract and present the GIST (the main content and opinions) of online multilingual news and the corresponding content in social media.

Faith Online: Transnational Religious Politics on New Media in India and Europe

Description
This project explores new media practices in India and its diaspora in Europe, to examine the relations between the expanding Internet media and the political cultures of religious identities in the current moment of globalization. As opposed to understanding new media as discrete channels of communication or an abstract technological context that defines globalization, the project uses a unique conceptual frame of approaching the Internet as an arena of “multiple interfaces”. This frame foregrounds the profound mediation of the Internet media in bringing distinct actors, levels of authority, ideologies and motivations in close confrontation: the nation state, market, diaspora, homeland publics and divergent religious communities. Each project in the proposed program will illuminate one important strand of the interfaces, to ask how these interfaces constitute new mediated spaces of collisions and contiguities, which allow political actors within and beyond the national frontiers to negotiate and collaborate in unprecedented ways. It examines how in turn, the generative capacity of such mediated interfaces has opened up new locations, modulations and means of practice for the political use of religion, especially for interreligious difference as a political concept. It scrutinizes the implications of these developments for relations of sovereignty and citizenship, with a theoretical objective to approach the emerging confluence of religious enterprise, political conservatism and economic liberalization. To achieve the objectives, the study, in a rare methodological move, combines social media network analysis with ethnography of actual people posting the messages on online media.

Upload. Urban Politics of London Youngsters Analyzed Digitally

Description
The main aim of the proposed study is to investigate the lived experience of cultural difference among young Londoners (between 12-18 years) of different cultural backgrounds. Internet applications such as the video sharing platform YouTube, the social-networking site Facebook and micro-blog Twitter are taken as entry points to study the juxtaposition of differences in urban, digital representations. I will theorize and produce new empirical knowledge about how digital practices become loci of intercultural encounters. Taking a comparative approach, I focus on the networked belonging of youths from lower-class (often more multicultural) and upper-class (often more homogeneous) London boroughs on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. As digital practices have become a significant part of their life, it is urgent to achieve greater insights in whether their use of Internet applications corroborates pan-European sentiments of failed multiculturalism and ethnic segregation or whether their experiences rather showcase conviviality, cross-cultural exchange and cultural hybridization. Thus far, the ways in which diverse ethnic/gender/religious identities digitally encounter, negotiate and appropriate one another across online/offline spaces have remained understudied. Innovatively bringing new media, gender and postcolonial studies into dialogue; the layered dynamics and user-generated cultural heterogeneity across Internet applications is scrutinized. The proposed study combines large-scale digital methods to study geographically tagged user-generated content, qualitative in-depth interviews with 90 youths and virtual ethnography with 30 young informants.

UniteEurope: ICT tools and the e-governance of immigrant integration

Description
UniteEurope; the role of ICT-tools in the E-Governance of Immigrant Integration (FP7 project) UniteEurope aims at giving the main actors of integration – immigrants and members of the host societies – a voice by analysing public Social Media contents generated by citizens. This bottom-up approach allows revealing urban integration issues as they are actually experienced by those concerned. Thereby, the UniteEurope tool is meant to enable local decision makers to identify focal points, but also positive developments, as well as to initiate effective, efficient and sustainable integration measures and policies. An extensive in-depth analysis of urban administration as well as integration issues and measures, mainly gathered by qualitative methods of social research, should serve as the basis for software development. In close cooperation between social scientists and IT-specialists, an integration issue grid model with multi-layer logic patterns will be used for consistent categorisation of relevant integration areas (e.g. education, business, culture, etc.) in cities. Coherent layers with multilingual semantic tags, significant sources and parameters will make up the logical core of the tool. UniteEurope supports operational integration measures and strategic policy development at regional and pan-European level. The UniteEurope team consists of experts in E-Government, Social Media and integration from leading universities and competence centres, as well as system architects, software developers, companies, cities and NGOs from Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden. The team is counselled by international NGOs dealing with immigration, integration and asylum issues. The UniteEurope project is coordinated by INSET from Austria. The Erasmus University Research team is primarily involved with the social-scientific analysis of integration issues and local integration policies on which the ICT tools for social media analysis are to be developed.

Migration Trend Analysis

Description
Considering the political crises that have taken place in recent years in the Middle East and Northern Africa, and potential trends of the future, further migration trends to Europe are to be expected. In order to assess such developments, new methods for monitoring, early detection and trend analysis of migration movements are needed. This project in particular considers the potential usage of satellite imagery, open sources and (public) social media for this purpose. Objectives: • Analysis of satellite images, to better recognise large-scale movements of people and vehicles • Analysis of a variety of data sources from open sources and (public) social media • Fusion of such information across time and geographic space into a visual medium, in order to analyse potential migration flows towards Europe • Ensure all such efforts are in line with legal and ethical requirements Project Partners: Universität für Weiterbildung Krems (Donau-Universität Krems), Zentralanstalt für Meteorologie und Geodynamik, SYNYO GmbH, Bundesministerium für Inneres BM.I, Research Institute AG & Co KG, Bundesministerium für Landesverteidigung

Cross-lingual Event-centric Open Analytics Research Academy

Description
With a rapidly increasing degree of integration among the European countries, a rising number of events, such as Paris shootings and Brexit, strongly impact the European community and the European digital economy across language and country borders. This development results in a vast amount of event-centric multilingual information available from different communities in the news, on the Web and in social media. Cross-lingual technologies to efficiently access, analyse and interact with this information are of utmost importance for various stakeholder groups across Europe, including digital humanities, memory institutions, publishers, media monitoring companies and journalists. The Cleopatra ITN offers a unique interdisciplinary and intersectoral research and training programme addressing these challenges. The main objectives are to: 1) Facilitate advanced cross-lingual processing of event-centric textual and visual information on a large scale; 2) develop innovative methods for efficient and intuitive user access and interaction with multilingual information; 3) facilitate large-scale analytics of multilingual event-centric information and cross-cultural studies; 4) educate a group of top-level scientists with unique interdisciplinary and intersectoral expertise in multilingual information science who will be enabled to take leading roles in research and industry in the future; and 5) establish an interdisciplinary curriculum for cross-lingual information analytics. The main outcomes of Cleopatra include: 1) novel methods for event-centric cross-lingual processing; 2) highly innovative user interaction paradigms for multilingual information; 3) open large-scale data sets and software components for a variety of EU languages; and 4) an interdisciplinary curriculum and educational materials. Overall, Cleopatra will contribute to the European digital economy in several application domains and strengthen the European position in multilingual information science.

(Un)Just NeighbourhoodsSocio-Spatial Justice in Urban Neighbourhoods

Description
Rapid urbanisation, growing process of globalisation, and the neoliberal hegemony have culminated in the omnipresence of socio-spatial inequalities at the neighbourhood scale regarding racial segregation, deprivation, stigmatisation, and degradation. European and North American cities, among others, have initiated neighbourhood-oriented urban redevelopment schemes to mitigate the burden of urban injustice. However, there is no integrated framework to evaluate their achievements, the contribution of urban neighbourhoods to just cities has not been systematically investigated. To address this lacuna, the project conceptualises the idea of (un)just neighbourhoods from socio-spatial justice perspective and develops an evaluation framework for measuring key qualities of socio-spatial justice at the neighbourhood scale. The project employs a methodological bricolage approach to address its interdisciplinary nature. It first theorises (un)just neighbourhoods from two perspectives of intra-neighbourhood and inter-neighbourhood socio-spatial justice. It then proposes an integrated framework, consisting of a set of principles, indicators, and measures, for evaluating neighbourhood-oriented redevelopment schemes. Focusing on two neighbourhoods of Bayview-Hunters Point (San Francisco) and Fruitvale (Oakland), the research critically reflects on the constructed storytelling around socio-spatial justice imposed by the local authorities. The proposed evaluation framework is applied to the case study neighbourhoods through intensive fieldwork to explore whether and to what extent the implemented redevelopment schemes have enhanced socio-spatial justice of the neighbourhoods, or re-produced existing socio-spatial injustice, in both process of interventions and their outcomes. Finally, using recent achievements in digital ethnography, the project documents alternative paths and stories towards achieving greater urban justice practiced by the community coalitions and grassroots.

Determinants of ‘Mobilisation’ at Home and Abroad: Analysing the Micro-Foundations of Out-Migration & Mass Protest

Principal investigator Olga Onuch (Principal Investigator), Gwendolyn Sasse (Principal Investigator), Jacquelien; van Stekelenburg (Principal Investigator), Sorana Toma (Principal Investigator)
Description
Im Zentrum des MOBILISE Projekts steht die folgende Forschungsfrage: Warum reagieren einige Menschen auf gesellschaftlichen Unmut mit Protesten, während andere in die Emigration gehen? Wir verknüpfen die konzeptuellen Erwartungen aus der Migrationsforschung und der Forschung zu sozialen Protesten miteinander und untersuchen: a) ob es ähnliche Faktoren sind, die die Entscheidung für Migration und/oder Protest auf der Ebene des Individuums bestimmen; b) wie der jeweilige politische, soziale und wirtschaftliche Kontext diese Arten von Mobilisierung beeinflusst; c) ob die Optionen Migration und Protest unabhängig voneinander sind, oder ob sie sich gegenseitig verstärken, oder ob eine Option die andere unterdrückt. MOBILISE verbindet verschiedene methodologische Ansätze (nationale repräsentative face-to-face Panel-Umfragen, Online-Umfragen unter Migrant*Innen; Direktumfragen unter Protestteilnehmenden, Fokusgruppen, narrative Interviews, Soziale Medien-Analyse) und ein Forschungsdesign, das zeitgleich an verschiedenen Standorten umgesetzt wird. Das Projekt konzentriert sich auf die Ukraine, Polen, Marokko und Brasilien - vier Länder, die in den letzten Jahren sowohl von signifikanter Emigration als auch von Protesten geprägt waren. Wir folgen den Migrant*innen aus diesen Ländern nach Deutschland, Großbritannien und Spanien. MOBILISE verbindet in seiner Konzeption und empirischen Reichweite vier innovative Elemente: 1) Es verbindet die Phänomene Migration und Protest in einer Studie; 2) es erfasst alle für eine vergleichende Studie relevanten Gruppen (Protestierende, Migrant*innen, Migrant*innen, die protestieren, und Individuen, die sich weder für Migration noch für Protest entschieden haben); 3) es erfasst Individuen durch die Panel-Struktur der Umfragen über einen längeren Zeitraum hinweg; 4) es nutzt Soziale Medien als Zugang zu Echtzeit-Informationen über die Rolle von Netzwerken und politischen Transfers (political remittances). Durch diese vier Dimensionen verspricht das Projekt, erstmals in diesem Umfang empirische Daten zu erheben, einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Theoriebildung in der Migrations- und Protestforschung zu leisten sowie einen Transfer von empirischen Erkenntnisse an Policy-Makers zu ermöglichen, die von zentraler Bedeutung für politische und wirtschaftliche Stabilität sind.

The International Register of Academic Job Categories. Facilitating Careers in the European Research Area

Description
The Proof of Concept INTAC project will create a prototype of an online Register which systematically lists, explains and compares formal job categories and status positions of research- and teaching staff in 575 higher education institutions in France, Germany and Great Britain. It will set up the Register on a public multilingual platform and provide resources for career-relevant decision-making (such as career guidelines, CV templates, visualisation and mapping tools for career tracks and status systems, identifier of job equivalents, a community forum). While international academic mobility is growing at high rates and academic systems are rapidly changing, job-seekers as well as recruiting institutions often grapple with the fact that job and status categories in academic institutions (such as PRAG, Akademische Rätin or Teaching Fellow) are difficult to understand for those coming from other institutions or systems. As a consequence, academics may not recognize the most suitable career paths and academic institutions may not receive the best applications. Responding to a demand from academics, employers, unions, associations and organisations in the higher education sector, the INTAC Register aims to facilitate academic recruitments, make national and international academic job markets more transparent and help academic career planning in the European Research Area. In order to bring the Register to the market, INTAC will create a diversified revenue stream, including regular premium user fees and licensing to academic social media. Future sponsors from the public sector will be invited to commission more institutions, countries and service functions to be included into the Register. INTAC draws on the comparative research of the ERC DISCONEX (“The Discursive Construction of Academic Excellence”) project on categorizations and careers of academic researchers in the UK, France, Germany and the U.S.

Trauma Studies in the Digital Age: The Impact of Social Media on Trauma Processing in Life Narratives and in Trauma Literature: the Case of Hungary

Description
The aim of the TRAPRODIG project is to analyse cultural and literary trauma processing in the framework of digital memory studies, particularly in relation to the similarities and differences of collective trauma processing and trauma literature in modern democracies and dictatorships; with a special trans-cultural focus on the case of Hungary as a post-socialist country with unresolved twentieth century collective traumas and on life narratives of Hungarian migrants in Europe, especially in the United Kingdom. The interdisciplinary scientific goal of the project is to introduce the concept of “digital (cultural and literary) trauma processing” and develop the scientific field of “digital trauma studies” at the intersection of digital memory studies and cultural trauma studies; based on the outcomes of the two way knowledge transfer in the training-through research of the applicant, who is an expert on literary and cultural trauma studies, at the leading research centre of cultural and digital memory studies at the University of Amsterdam. The TRAPRODIG project is of clear relevance to the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions programme as it will contribute to a better understanding of the link of current cultural developments to the collective traumas of the past in post-socialist countries; it draws attention to the voices of contemporary migrants within the European cultural framework; and it will also add significantly to the mapping of trauma literature and life narratives in Europe by analysing how the 21st century digital environment influences both personal and collective trauma processing in local, national and trans-national communities within Europe.
