Young People, ICTs and Democracy: Theories, Policies, Identities and Websites
Tobias Olsson, Peter Dahlgren
Coronet Books Incorporated, 2010 - Computers - 250 pages
The rhetoric on the Internet and its potential implications for the sphere of politics have been especially pertinent in regard to young people. Through the use of notions such as the e-generation or the messenger generation, the new ICT's supposed transformative potential has been identified and discussed. Just based on the title of this book, it might seem as if we are offering a similar approach here - speculative reflections on the significance of the Internet for young people's engagement and participation.
