Emergent Social Forms

Given that the social is spatially constructed (and vice versa), new information technologies relate in powerful ways to the transformation of social identities.

Central fringe questions:

What new spaces and social structures are being constructed by local access to globally disseminated information technologies? 

How do the information technologies enable or constrain the formation of new political identities: In what ways are individuals, families and social groups transformed?

What is the relationship between political empowerment, social action and technology use?
