“Violence and anonymity in the Mexican blogosphere”
April 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
About the presentation: This presentation engages some of the ways in which violence in Mexico has reshaped the Mexican blogosphere. In particular, here I analyze the uses of anonymity in citizen journalism and engage this anonymity from the perspective of foundational ideas about the public sphere and about liberal democratic political discourse.
