Online Activism in Latin America examines the innovative ways in which Latin American citizens, and Latin@s in the U.S., use the Internet to advocate for causes that they consider just. The contributions to the volume analyze citizen-launched websites, interactive platforms, postings, and group initiatives that support a wide variety of causes, ranging from human rights to disability issues, indigenous groups' struggles, environmental protection, art, poetry and activism, migrancy, and citizen participation in electoral and political processes. This collection bears witness to the early stages of a very unique and groundbreaking form of civil activism culture now growing in Latin America.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Chacon's volume on the internet as a tool for community building and political advocacy in Latin American social movements will be a welcome contribution to a burgeoning interdisciplinary field. This collection builds on media communications' and literary studies' work on the aesthetic and consumer implications of the internet to uncover the geopolitical, economic, environmental, and cultural potential of new electronic media for participatory, citizen-based activism. From music to migration, favelas to bloggers, border activism to performative memory work, these scholars capture the power of digital citizenship." -Marcy Schwartz, Rutgers University
