Jeffrey Juris (Boston): Revisiting Occupy: Social Media, Public Space, and

Jeffrey Juris revisits the significance of the Everywhere movements in 2011-12, examining the links between social media, public space, and emerging forms of civil disobedience in an increasingly transnational and digitised world.

Whereas Internet listservs and websites helped give rise to a widespread logic of networking within the movements for global justice of the 1990s–2000s, Jeffrey Juris argues that social media contributed to an
emerging logic of aggregation in the more recent movements—one
that involves the assembling of masses of individuals from diverse backgrounds
within physical spaces. However, despite a shift toward more decentralised forms of organising and networking, the movements proved largely unable to maintain their momentum following the eviction of encampments around the world, raising important questions about the sustainability of social movements in an age of social media.
