[ecrea] IJoC Publishers Special Section on Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society

Thu Feb 16 09:52:43 GMT 2017

The International Journal of Communication Publishes Special Section Digital
Citizenship and Surveillance Society
  The revelations by whistleblower Edward Snowden have transformed our
understanding of digital communication. Providing unprecedented insights
into Internet and telecommunications surveillance, they pointed us to the
ways in which the ‘datafication’ of increasing aspects of our lives have
become central to governance and control.  What, then, are the implications
of ubiquitous surveillance for digital citizenship?  How should we
understand the actions of citizens in a monitored and datafied environment? In what ways do power relations between citizens and the state shift ― and
with what avenues for intervention?
 Guest-edited by Arne Hintz, Lina Dencik, Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, Michael
Rogers and Ian Brown, this Special Section on Digital Citizenship and
Surveillance Society discusses the state of digital citizenship in the
aftermath of the Snowden revelations, based on findings from a two-year
UK-based research project. A first group of contributors present project
results on the implications of the Snowden leaks for journalism, public
knowledge, possibilities for dissent, technological infrastructure, and
regulatory frameworks. A second group ― renowned scholars from the fields
of surveillance, media and journalism studies, as well as representatives of
civil society organizations ― situate these findings in current
developments in datafied societies. Together, the articles present a
comprehensive analysis of the consequences of the Snowden leaks, and they
re-think digital citizenship in a post-Snowden world.

We invite you to read these articles that published in the International
Journal of Communication on February 15, 2017.   We look forward to your
