WIAS, CAMRI and Pluto Press are pleased to invite you to the book launch
of “Digital Demagogue: Authoritarian Capitalism in the Age of Trump and
Twitter” by Christian Fuchs.
Christian Fuchs will be giving an introduction to “Digital Demagogue”, a
timely and topical study of the expressions of ideology, nationalism and
authoritarianism in the age of big data, Trump and social media.
We are all familiar with the ways that Donald Trump uses digital media
to communicate, from the ridiculous to the terrifying. This book digs
deeper into the use of those tools in politics to show how they have
facilitated the rise of authoritarianism, nationalism, and right-wing
ideologies around the world.
