Michele Zappavigna

Senior Lecturer
As a linguist, my primary focus is on exploring the discourse of social media, in terms of linguistic, paralinguistic, and multimodal patterns. Essentially I am interested in ‘ambient affiliation’: how people bond online. Some of this research has been published in my books Discourse of Twitter and Social Media and Searchable Talk: Hashtags and Social Media Metadiscourse. Other recent work includes Discourse and Diversionary Justice.
