Title

Hacktivism as Social Action: Understanding Corporeal Ramifications of Digital Movements

Abstract

This work discusses the crossover between the embodied nature of social activist goals and the affordances and ideologies of digital cultures, demonstrating how these seemingly oppositional concepts can work together to promote the goals of community members in both spheres. In particular I am interested in the ways in which hacktivism crosses the boundaries between digital embodiment, public communication, and social activism to extend its reach from digital forums into corporeal communities.
