Abstract:

The arrival of smartphones, cheaper data packs and social networking sites is seen to have had a major impact on social and political mobilisations in India. New media and online social networks have also become a ready tool for participation in election campaigns, particularly for the younger ‘millennial’ demographic which has emerged as a beating heart of protest and public policy today. In spite of the widely held notions about youth disaffection and their general disinterest in politics, younger citizens in India have been at the forefront in the use of media in campaigns across various states while at the same time becoming the visible fist of brutalising politics which seems to evade the institutional framework for democracy. This one–day workshop aims to unpack the rise of social media influencers and practitioners as a crucial political intermediary, and explore their role in enabling popular mobilisations, in elections campaigns as well as in the context of public policy.
