Platform Cooperativism Resource Library


In this collection, Lisa Nakamura and Peter A. Chow-White bring together interdisciplinary, forward-looking essays that explore the complex role that digital media technologies play in shaping our ideas about race. Race After the Internet contains essays on the shifting terrain of racial identity and its connections to social media technologies like Facebook and MySpace, popular online games like World ofWarcraft, You Tube and viral video, genetic ancestry testing, and DNA databases in health and law enforcement. Contributors aim to broaden the definition of the “digital divide” in order to convey a more nuanced understanding of access, usage, meaning, participation, and production of digital media technology in light of racial inequality.
