Descripción

RMIT Senior Lecturer in Communication John Postill will present his latest book: The Rise of Nerd Politics at this evening literary event in RMIT Europe. At the conjuncture of antropology, media studies and sociology, this book offers a pertinent reflection on the future of political change in the digital age.

The irruption of Wikileaks, Anonymous, Snowden and other techsavy actors onto the global political stage raises urgent questions about the impact of digital activism on political systems around the world. Postill tracks the rise of techno-political 'nerds' as a new class of political brokers with growing influence. The book identifies and explores four domains of 'nerd politics' that have dramatically expanded since 2010: data activism, digital rights, social protest and formal politics.
