Shifting African Digital Landscapes|

Tuesday 17 March | 6.30-8pm | New Theatre

Developments and changes to the online media sphere point to interesting possibilities for how Africans are engaging in the global public sphere. Whether via irreverent Youtube prank videos, blogs, Instagram, song remixes, or producing independent online media (such as the Nigerian-focused Sahara Reporters), among others, and addressing topics such as homosexuality, gender relations, economic relations, African subjects are taking their place more and more as audiences and agents, rather than as receivers of aid and information.Twitter hashtag: #LSEAfrica.
