MODA is based at University of Minho in Braga, Portugal.

The group was created in 2017.  After initial work on the presence of the Portuguese far-right on Facebook the group incorporated new elements sharing the same interest in the interplay between online content production and its interplay with social and political activities.

Recent work:

  • The Portuguese Far-Right on Facebook. What? Does it even exist? – an attempt to map the portuguese far-right and how it reflects the surge in populism throughout Europe.
  • Tweeting the Zika Virus – a social network analysis of how people discussed the propagation of the Zika virus on Twitter.
