Activism at the Web examines the standard tensions that political activists face as they arrive to phrases with the more and more commercialized nature of internet applied sciences and sheds mild on a major, but under-investigated, size of the connection among modern kinds of social protest and web applied sciences.

Drawing on anthropological and ethnographic examine among 3 very diverse political teams within the united kingdom, Italy and Spain, the e-book argues that activists’ daily net makes use of are mostly outlined through strategies of negotiation with electronic capitalism. those techniques of negotiation are giving upward push to a chain of collective reports, that are outlined through the strain among activists’ democratic wishes on one aspect and the cultural techniques strengthened by way of electronic capitalism at the different. In taking a look at the come upon among activist cultures and electronic capitalism, the ebook focuses particularly at the stress created through self-centered conversation procedures and networked-individualism, via company surveillance and data-mining, and by means of fast-capitalism and the temporality of immediacy.

Activism at the Web means that if we wish to know the way new applied sciences are affecting political participation and democratic techniques, we should always now not specialise in disruption and novelty, yet we must always in its place discover the advanced dialectics among electronic discourses and electronic practices; among the technical and the social; among the political economic climate of the internet and its lived critique.
