Exploring the Urban-Rural Divide via Social Media Analysis

I will distill Tweets from 10 different individuals and organizations that are recognized as leaders in the alternative food movement in regards to how they (or how they fail to) mention, portray, and discuss farmers and their contributions to the food system.

Message to Sponsor

Thank you very much for the funding that I have received from you in order to continue performing research over the summer! Your kind gift allows me to continue studying what I am passionate about so that we may work to bridge the widening gap between the urban and rural populations in the United States. Your support to URAP and to this University is of utmost importance to me and every other URAP Summer Stipend recipient.
