New Noise

A Cultural Sociology of Digital Disruption


Simon Lindgren

This book is about online subcultures thriving in the border zones between pop cultural and political engagement. Combining classic theories of space, power and resistance with current case studies of digital piracy, online activism and remix culture, the book develops a cultural theory of social movements in the digital age.

Some of the empirical work presented in this book has also been reported elsewhere. Chapter 4 is based on an article published in New Media and Society (Lindgren & Lundström, 2011), and chapter 7 has been published in a slightly different form in the European Journal of Communication (Lindgren, 2012). Chapter 8 builds on a text that was included in Media, Culture and Society (Lindgren, 2011), and chapter 9 draws heavily on a piece from Convergence (Lindgren & Linde, 2012). I would like to thank my co-authors Jessica Linde and Ragnar Lundström for their valuable contributions. The writing of this book has been partly funded by the Swedish Research Council (through the project Filesharing and Sense of Justice), the Knowledge Foundation (through the program YouTube as a Performative Arena), and the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research (through the project Social Media and Political Participation). ← xi | xii → ← xii | xiii →
