Networks and Borderlands: Bordering Processes in the 21st Century
In this first lecture, we'll establish the framework for our future discussions. What do borders look like in the 21st century? Does it make sense to talk about borders in digital spaces, and if so, what do they look like? How do online social movements and ideologies engage in "bordering processes"? Our discussions in this lecture will lay the foundation for our examination of far-right extremism (such as Qanon, Proud Boys, the 3%ers, Incels and Oath Keepers).
