"Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society": New Special Section published in the International Journal of Communication

The revelations by whistleblower Edward Snowden have transformed our understanding of digital communication. Providing unprecedented insights into Internet and telecommunications surveillance, they pointed us to the ways in which the 'datafication' of increasing aspects of our lives have become central to governance and control.  What, then, are the implications of ubiquitous surveillance for digital citizenship?  How should we understand the actions of citizens in a monitored and datafied environment? In what ways do power relations between citizens and the state shift ― and with what avenues for intervention?

Guest-edited by Arne Hintz, Lina Dencik, Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, Michael Rogers and Ian Brown, this Special Section on Digital Citizenship and Surveillance Society discusses the state of digital citizenship in the aftermath of the Snowden revelations, based on findings from a two-year UK-based research project. A first group of contributors present project results on the implications of the Snowden leaks for journalism, public knowledge, possibilities for dissent, technological infrastructure, and regulatory frameworks. A second group ― renowned scholars from the fields of surveillance, media and journalism studies, as well as representatives of civil society organizations ― situate these findings in current developments in datafied societies. Together, the articles present a comprehensive analysis of the consequences of the Snowden leaks, and they re-think digital citizenship in a post-Snowden world.

The Special Section is available as part of volume 11 of the International Journal of Communication: It includes the following articles:
