Meghan is a PhD Candidate at Loughborough University’s Online Civic Culture Centre. Her research focuses on internet subcultures, influencer culture, reactionary narratives on legacy and social media, and the relationship between online discourse and offline mobilization. In particular, she is exploring the degree to which reactionary YouTube influencers actually influence their viewers. Meghan is also interested more broadly in online harms and the platforms that enable them.
