DIGITAL ACTIVISM: ADDRESSING SOCIAL MOVEMENTS IN THE DIGITAL AGE.


by Colin Sibbernsen

A Senior Honors Thesis Submitted to the Faculty of
The University of Utah
In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Honors Degree in Bachelor of Arts in Political Science

ABSTRACT:

Technological progression in the area of information and communication technology
allows for expansion of prior social movement theorizing. The ways in which social
movements are organized and carried out today need to be carefully analyzed and
discussed to identify new methods of organization and mobilization of social movements
as influenced by progression in information and communication technology (ICTs). This
paper addresses how progression in ICTs is affecting social movements. In order to do
this, I describe the evolution and progression of social movement theory beginning in the
early twentieth century. This discussion illustrates how social movements and
subsequent social movement theories reflect their socio-historical context and intellectual
climates. I establish a broad framework based on mobilizing structures, opportunity
structures, and framing processes to consider how digital forms of activism fit within
existing social movement theories.
