Netactivism and Democracy by Peter Dahlgren

The opening of the 4th edition of the PhD FCT – Communication Studies: Technology, Culture and Society, Peter Dahlgren will be present at ULHT on 6 October, at 16h in the Auditorium Vítor Sá (Library Building), to deliver the conference entitled:

Netactivism and Democracy: Technical, Socio-Cultural, and Aesthetic Contingencies

In this presentation I will take as my point of departure the fact of political engagement and participation via the Internet (very broadly understood to include social media, mobile devices, etc.).

This is a very large and heterogeneous terrain, including involvement via political parties as well as alternative groups, movements and networks.

Moreover, netactivism can be found across the political spectrum.
