For the course Communication and Language in Africa, taught at Leiden University, Lecturers Maarten Mous and Mirjam de Bruijn assigned a group of students to analyse the recent elections in Kenya and Liberia, using the internet as their main domain of research. This resulted in several multi-media products: a radio programme, essays, animated video content and websites. These products will be integrated in one e-publication, that is currently in the making.
