Summary
"Wired Citizenship examines the evolving patterns of youth learning and activism in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). In todays digital age, in which formal schooling often competes with the peer-driven outlets provided by social media, youth all over the globe have forged new models of civic engagement, rewriting the script of what it means to live in a democratic society. As a result, state-society relationships have shifted never more clearly than in the MENA region, where recent uprisings were spurred by the mobilization of tech-savvy and politicized youth.Combining original research with a thorough exploration of theories of democracy, communications, and critical pedagogy, this edited collection describes how youth are performing citizenship, innovating systems of learning, and re-imagining the practices of activism in the information age. Recent case studies illustrate the context-specific effects of these revolutionary new forms of learning and social engagement in the MENA region"--
