Dear all

We have a late opening in our visiting fellowship programme in Media and Communication at the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.

Unfortunately the timeframe clashes with the AIR conference, but if any of you are not travelling to Berlin and would like to spend some time in New Zealand, please consider applying.

Within the department we have been doing a lot of work on the use of Twitter after the Christchurch earthquakes of 2010 onwards, and we have a useful dataset that may be interesting to some of you.

I'm happy to answer any questions you may have.
