Social movements can be defined as social change at the local, national or global level. This change can take place in terms of affecting the human rights issues and concerns or policies, ethnic, national or gender equality issues, or environmental, class and religious/secularist changes driven by people rather than the governments of power regimes. This course aims to discuss the link between media technologies, including digital and mobile ones, and social movements of the recent past. (NMD 3105)
