"The emergence of new communication technologies -- such as the Internet and social media networking sites and platforms -- has strongly affected social movement activism. ... Carty examines these movements and their uses of digital technologies within the context of social movement theory and history. With a ... mix of theory and real-world examples, Social Movements and New Technology takes readers on a tour through MoveOn and Tea Party e-mail campaigns, the hacktavist tactics of Anonymous, global online protests against rapists and rape culture, and the tweets and Facebook pages that accompanied uprisings across the Arab world, Europe, and the United States. In each case study, the reader is invited to examine the movement, organization, or protest and their use of digital tools through the lens of social movement theory. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter invite critical thinking, further reflection, and debate."--Cover.
