|<nettime> Christian Fuchs - new book: Nationalism on the Internet: Critical Theory and Ideology in the Age of Social Media and Fake News|
http://fuchs.uti.at/books/nationalism-on-the-internet/ (including reading sample/introduction) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y25je5XtUcQIn this timely book, critical theorist Christian Fuchs asks: What is nationalism and what is the role of social media in the communication of nationalist ideology?
Advancing an applied Marxist theory of nationalism, Fuchs explores nationalist discourse in the world of contemporary digital capitalism that is shaped by social media, big data, fake news, targeted advertising, bots, algorithmic politics, and a high-speed online attention economy.
The book develops a critical theory of nationalism that is grounded in the works of Karl Marx, Rosa Luxemburg, and Eric J. Hobsbawm.
