This session inaugurates the DigAct network (Digital Activism in China, Scandinavia and USA) that brings together American, Chinese and Scandinavian scholars of a vivid and striving field at the intersection of media and communication studies, sociology, cultural studies and political science focusing on the role of digital media and its most important predecessors for political mobilization and organization.
