Ativismo em Rede e Plataformas Colaborativas.O caso dos ativismos e plataformas que emergiram na sequência dos incêndios de 2017 (Portugal) // Activism in Collaborative Networks and Platforms The case of the activisms and platforms that emerged with the 2017 fires (Portugal)

The project proposes to study the activisms related to the major fires that hit Portugal, in particular the inner Central region, June 17 and following days and October 15 and 16, 2017. It aims to identify, characterize and analyze the collaborative digital platforms that instituted alternative public spaces and new forms of collective and political action. Given that the use of networked digital technologies by netactivists relies on a new type of reticular sociability that develops in connected digital social networks and participatory media, in which the possibilities of unlimited expression and dissemination of messages are used for new modes of interaction, association, and mobilization (whether protest or other civic mobilizations), we intend to analyze the new modes of communication, sociality, and mobilization that create alternative public spaces and new forms of social and political intervention.
