Seminar Series - 'From riot police to tweets: How world leaders use social media during contentious politics'

Elite communication has the potential to influence public opinion, civil conflict, and diplomatic interactions. However, a comparative study of leaders' public rhetoric has proven elusive due to the difficulties of developing comparable measures across countries and over time. The advent of social media sites, and its widespread adoption by world leaders, offers a unique new source of data to overcome these challenges. Full details

Introduction to Discourse Network Analysis (DNA)

Discourse network analysis is a toolbox of research methods for the analysis of actor-based debates, such as policy debates or political discussions. Examples include the policy debates on climate change, pension politics, or around the introduction of large infrastructure projects. Political actors typically include organisations (interest groups, political parties, government agencies etc.) or individual persons (legislators, celebrities etc.). These actors make statements about policy instruments, solution concepts, narratives, frames, issues, arguments etc. in the media or other arenas, and these statements are temporally and cross-sectionally interdependent. Actors build coalitions in a debate by reinforcing each other’s statements or making similar statements, and they frequently contradict each other over time among these coalitions.. Full details

Thriving culture of prizes and scholarships

The Law School has a thriving culture of prizes and scholarships which involves collaboration with, and taking inspiration from influential global Partners. This culture has been introduced and developed with Dr Radek Stech taking up an appointment as the Director of Prizes, Bursaries and Scholarships in November 2015.

Our culture of prizes and scholarships is based upon two core guiding principles: ‘beyond marks’ and ‘beyond money’. The first relates to the criteria upon which the student winners are selected and includes extracurricular activities, community engagement and leadership.  The ‘beyond money’ principle encourages the students to take advantage and think in terms of wider developmental opportunities offered by the donors.

This portfolio is also developed through partnerships with our donors, academic staff, Exeter alumni, and the students with the view to cultivating long term relationships that will lead to improved careers for our students.

Please see below the current list of our prizes and how they align with our culture of prizes and scholarships.
