Miradas para una ciudadanía emergente. Encuentros y desencuentros en el escenario digital

Today we inhabit a world that has been transformed by digital technologies, allowing effortless connection through social media and access to vast amounts of information. In this socio-cultural space, a form of citizenship emerges that displays its capacities and potentialities; that requires active participation in different moments of encounter and disagreement; that calls for dialogue, decision-making, the creation and consumption of information, and, above all, that aims to the configuration of critical subjects capable of transforming their reality: citizens who are also consumers: gamers, readers of news and people looking for love with their best profile picture.

In the emergence of this citizenship, dialogical-discursive relationships arise in the context of mass self-communication, through daily, individual and collective interactions, in which fundamental rights are disputed, such as the rights to communicate, to information, to free expression, to privacy. All this scenario, of course, implies great challenges for the exercise of citizen life.

Considering this, in the development of this book the gaze is returned to the practices that in one way or another allow and demand to be assumed as a political subject from everyday life. Without intending to exhaust the contexts and contingencies of the digital, the text calls for interpretation, discussion and search for answers that allow us to understand the emerging citizenship, of which we are already participants, beyond our clicks.
