Along with co-author Andrew Miller, Evan Lieberman is studying whether online newspapers promote or undermine nation-building in divided societies. Editorial decisions to reference specific, subnational ethnic groups can serve as consequential reminders of relevant social categories. Using evidence from Africa, the authors find that the use of some ethnic categories in headlines is associated with a significant increase in the probability of at least one reader making an ethnic-based comment.
