Digital Activism

Digital media technologies, from blogs written on personal computers and crowdsourcing mobile apps, to Facebook, Twitter and beyond, have been credited with aiding revolutions, as well as activist groups large and small. While digital media technologies generate opportunity for individual and collective action, they raise concerns about slacktivism and return on resource investment. Our CDMS researchers investigate these questions by engaging with digital activists as well as with the technologies generating all the excitement.
