Abstract

How has ‘the networked public’ contributed to the development of new social movements, strategies of resistance and an evolving relationship between the state and society in the realm of the everyday? In Networked Publics and Digital Contention: The Politics of Everyday Life in Tunisia, Mohamed Zayani takes Tunisia as a case study, drawing upon fieldwork, interviews and immersive analysis to show how social media is shaping the politics of everyday life following the ‘Arab Spring’. This book navigates a line between optimism and pessimism, acting as both a process of documentation and inspiration, writes Helton Levy.
