Research summary

My research explores how users of social media sites (such as Twitter) invoke different social categories (north Indian and south Indian) in ordinary online interactions. Using a Discursive Psychological/ Conversation Analytic approach, I try to understand the different actions accomplished by making categories relevant to ongoing interactions.
