Postcolonial Politics, The Internet And Everyday Life - new book

ISBN: 9780415339407

ID: 16578299

In this ground-breaking study M.I. Franklin explores the form and substance of everyday life online from a critical postcolonial perspective. With Internet access and social media uses accelerating in the Global South, in-depth studies of just how non-western communities, at home and living abroad, actually USE the Internet and web-based media are still relatively few. This book's pioneering. In this ground-breaking study M.I. Franklin explores the form and substance of everyday life online from a critical postcolonial perspective. With Internet access and social media uses accelerating in the Global South, in-depth studies of just how non-western communities, at home and living abroad, actually USE the Internet and web-based media are still relatively few. This book's pioneering USE of virtual ethnography and mixed method research in this study of a longstanding 'media diaspora' incorporates online participant-observation with offline fieldwork to explore how postcolonial diasporas from the south Pacific have been using the Internet since the early ways of the web. Through a critical reconsideration of the work of Michel de Certeau in light of postcolonial and feminist theories, the book provides insights into the practice of everyday life in a global and digital age by non-western participants online and offline. Critical of techno- and media-centric analyses of cyberspatial practices and power hierarchies, Franklin argues that a closer look at the content and communicative styles of these contemporary Pacific traversals suggest other Internet futures. These are visions of social media that can be more hospitable, culturally inclusive and economically equitable than those promulgated by both powerful commercial interests and state actors looking to take charge of the Internet 'after Web 2.0'. The book will be of interest to students of international politics, media and communications, cultural studies, science and technology studies, anthropology and sociology interested in how successive waves of new media interact with shifting power relations at the intersection of politics, culture, and society.

Postcolonial Politics, the Internet, and Everyday Life: Pacific Traversals Online
Author:

Franklin, M. I.

Title:

Postcolonial Politics, the Internet, and Everyday Life: Pacific Traversals Online

ISBN:

9780415339407

Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) are now an inescapable part of everyday life as well as an integral element to large scale political-economic change. In this close-up study of pioneering and longstanding Internet discussion forums, M.I. Franklin explores the practice of everyday life in cyberspace. The author traces how the online practices and discussions of postcolonial and diasporic communities rearticulate the gendered, political, ethnic and cultural dimensions of daily lives, political and cultural issues on the ground. In a neoliberal global era, however, the possibilities for intercultural and intracultural empowerment emerging through these sorts of Internet uses have to contend with political-economic and sociocultural pressures from all sides. Franklin argues that Pacific traversals in public, open cyberspace trace another possible future for the Internet; more hospitable and equitable than the one being currently put in place by political and economic power-brokers. This book will be of interest to students of international relations/international political economy, anthropology, cultural studies, science and technology studies.
