Rachelle Vessey conference presentation on ‘hashtag politics’

UntitledIn early September, Rachelle Vessey travelled to Hamburg to present as part of a session on “Hashtag politics” at the Language in the Media conference.

Her paper, entitled “The language politics of Twitter in Canada”, followed papers focusing on Hong Kong and France for a truly international approach to the communicative functions of hashtags in political contexts.

Rachelle was live-tweeting from the conference; you can follow her on Twitter here.
