Description - The Politics of Technology in Latin America (Volume 2): Digital Media, Daily Life and Public Engagement by David Ramirez Plascencia

This volume focuses on the hyper-mediatization of Latin America from the citizen's perspective, considering the social impact and how people embrace information technologies to improve their living conditions, engage in political issues and the role of digital journalism in promoting democratic values in Latin America.

The book is divided into three parts:

  • 'Digital Media and Daily Life in Latin America' explores cases related to the integration of digital media such as mobile devices, social platforms and, even, drones to diverse commercial, private and social activities.
  • 'Information technologies and civic engagement' gives special attention to the new political practices triggered by the irruption of smartphones and platforms, especially inside organizations and social movements in Latin America.
  • 'Journalism and Media Integrity in the Age of Post-truth' centers on the study of digital journalism and the new media landscape, and related issues like precarization of labor conditions and the crisis of reliability in media.

This second volume in a two volume set will be important reading for scholars and students of social use of digital media in Latin America, civic engagement, and the connections between politics, journalism and technology.
