Webinar Series on Digital Technologies and Democracy in Southeast Asia - Resistive Identity and Radical Ideology Claims in Cyberspace
Social media have become vital arenas for competing political identities and ideologies. For minority groups, digital platforms may offer a space for empowerment and positive resistance. For other groups that are excluded or feel alienated from the nation-state’s dominant identity, they may provide channels to more radical or extremist alternatives. This webinar examines various cases in which differences of race, ideology and religion may become organising principles in resistive identity and radical ideology claims in cyberspace. The webinar discussion is joined by Dr Asha Rathina Pandi (National University of Singapore) who will discuss “Race, Resistance and Digital Culture in Malaysia”, Mr Ibnu Nadzir (LIPI) will speak on “Digital Resistance and Fragmented Citizenship: Experiences of Indonesian Exiles”, Mr Rheinhardt Sirait (University of Western Australia) will discuss “Making Islam Cool Again: Online Branding of the Pemuda Hijrah Movement, Indonesia”, and Ms Nur Aziemah Azman (S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies) will examine “Online Extremism and Propaganda: IS in Southeast Asia”. The moderator of this webinar is Dr Norshahril Saat (ISEAS-Yusof Ishak Institute).
