Hosted by Aarhus University, Denmark
Ref: 2023-6
Research Fields
Digital youth studies, Sex/gender studies, educational and social psychology

The project investigates bullying behaviour online, and analyses gender as part of such behaviour. Research aims suggested are: 1. To analyse and map the varying gender discourses involved in bullying on the platforms young people use. 2. To study the technological affordances assisting practices and normativity involved in bullying. 3. To study parental access to and potential interaction with these processes. 4. To investigate the entanglement of negotiating, policing and bullying with a particular focus on young people’s and parents’ potential agency. The candidate is expected to work with empirical research material, preferably involving the use of qualitative methodology, but is otherwise free to design the research project independently under the heading ‘Young people and parents negotiating and policing gender through online bullying’.

The host institution will be Aarhus University, Denmark. The project includes two planned secondments at (1) Webwise, Ireland, at month 12 for 2 months and (2) Dublin City University, Ireland, month 26 for 4 months.
