Abstract:

In this monograph, Chris Featherman adopts a discourse analytical approach to
explore the ways in which social movement ideologies and identities are
discursively constructed in new and old media. In the context of his argument,
Featherman also considers current debates surrounding the role that
technologies play in democracy-building and global activist networks. He
engages these critical issues through a case study of the 2009 Iranian
presidential election protests, looking at both US legacy media coverage of
the protests as well as activists’ use of social media. Through qualitative
analysis of a corpus of activists’ Twitter tweets and Flickr uploads,
Featherman argues that activists’ social media discourses and protesters’
symbolic and tactical borrowing of global English contribute to
micronarratives of globalization, while also calling into question master
narratives about Iran commonly found in mainstream Western media accounts.
This volume makes a timely contribution to discussions regarding the
relationship between cyber-rhetoric and democracy, and provides new directions
for researchers engaging with the influence of new media on globalized
vernaculars of English.
