Global Digital Activism offers students an exploration of global digital activism through campaigns and mobilizations - including the Arab Spring and recent cases like #BringBackOurGirls. Students will study the history of the digital public sphere, grapple with questions about the cat-and-mouse game between authoritarian governments and opponents, and explore theories and ideas about the importance of social media technologies in both democratic and non-democratic contexts.
