Race and the Digital: Racial Formation and 21st Century Technologies

"From Tweets to Streets?" A Research Project with Digital Supplement


Using digital ethnography and readings in ethnic studies and media studies, students at UCLA have prepared reports that examine the ways a diverse range of social movements have engaged new media in their organizing efforts. Their evaluations foreground the ways race shapes digital access/participation and reflects on the broader significance of ICTs for generating critical engagement with questions of race and ethnicity, both on and off the internet. The project prompt and a sample format are available for viewing.
