#HashtagActivism is the use of social media by participants in contemporary social and political debates. In this seminar, researchers explore some of the fundamental questions around the use of these media in the contexts of gender and national identity.
- How do participants use these media?
- How do they allow new forms of political expression?
- What are their limitations as communications tools in the political domain?
