The Logic of Connective Action explains the rise of a personalized digitally networked politics in which diverse individuals address the common problems of our times such as economic fairness and climate change. Rich case studies from the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany illustrate a theoretical framework for understanding how large-scale connective action is coordinated. In many of these mobilizations, communication operates as an organizational process that may replace or supplement familiar forms of collective action based on organizational resource mobilization, leadership, and collective action framing. In some cases, connective action emerges from crowds that shun leaders, as when Occupy protesters created media networks to channel resources and create loose ties among dispersed physical groups. In other cases, conventional political organizations deploy personalized communication logics to enable large-scale engagement with a variety of political causes. The Logic of Connective Action shows how power is organized in communication-based networks, and what political outcomes may result.

In this counterintuitive study of digital democracy, Jen Schradie shows how the web has become another weapon in the arsenal of the powerful, and a potent weapon for conservative activists. Rather than leveling the playing field, the internet has tilted it in favor of the Right, where only the most sophisticated and well-funded players can compete.

This article draws upon the insights of 75 Occupy activists from Toronto and across the United States interviewed as part of the 3-year study 'Social Media in the Hands of Young Citizens'. This article highlights three major roles adopted by women in the so-called leaderless, horizontally structured Occupy movement – both within the offline, face-to-face General Assembly meetings held during the Occupy encampments and within the online spaces of Facebook pages, Web sites, affinity groups, and working committees. As key participants in the movement, women used social technologies such as Facebook, Twitter, and livestreaming as modes of activist engagement, developing unique roles such as that of the 'Admin' (Social Media Administrator), the 'Documentarian', and the 'Connector'. The women's adoption of these roles illustrates, we argue, the emerging notion of 'connective labor' an extended enactment of Bennett and Segerberg's (2012) notion of 'the logic of connective action', augmenting its logic to reveal the often hidden labor of women in sustaining the networked and affective dimension of social movements. This article highlights the gendered, hybrid, embodied, and material nature of women's connective labor that has supported, and in many ways sustained, the contemporary Occupy movement.

The intentional spread of falsehoods – and attendant attacks on minorities, press freedoms, and the rule of law – challenge the basic norms and values upon which institutional legitimacy and political stability depend. How did we get here? The Disinformation Age assembles a remarkable group of historians, political scientists, and communication scholars to examine the historical and political origins of the post-fact information era, focusing on the United States but with lessons for other democracies. Bennett and Livingston frame the book by examining decades-long efforts by political and business interests to undermine authoritative institutions, including parties, elections, public agencies, science, independent journalism, and civil society groups. The other distinguished scholars explore the historical origins and workings of disinformation, along with policy challenges and the role of the legacy press in improving public communication. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.

Three studies are conducted to test explanatory power of the theory of connective action logic in different political, geographical, and ideological contexts. Study I scrutinizes websites of political parties and non-governmental organizations in Ukraine to evaluate the level of personalized communication presented to visitors. Study II builds and analyzes digital networks created from each website, assessing degree of the network centralization. Study III tests whether supporters of political parties with more personalized communication and less hierarchical digital network are more politically engaged online and offline. Results demonstrate that the theory of connective action logic operates in an emerging democracy. Furthermore, this theory is not ideologically bound and can also explain mobilizing strategies of far-right political actors. Additionally, the logic of connective action can explain mobilizing strategies of political parties, particularly when it comes to use of personalized communication expressed by alignment between symbolic inclusiveness and technological openness. Finally, this project showed that while young Ukrainians, as their counterparts in developed democracies, are more likely to engage in politics online and offline if they tune to online news, political preferences and party support do not seem to explain level of engagement. These results are situated in the research on contentious politics, electoral campaigning, digital mobilization, populism and nationalism, as well as used to inform future research on electoral connectivity.

ABSTRACT: A growing body of research is examining the role of cyberactivism in facilitating social movements. Yet, few have considered the interplay between cyberactivism and disability advocacy. Through a case study of the #boycottautismspeaks movement, this study finds that cyberactivism may provide platforms for self-advocates to connect through bridging and bonding in unique ways that draw together and give voice to individuals who otherwise may not have means for such dynamic engagement. Drawing on a sample of approximately 10, 000 tweets that circulated with the #boycottautismspeaks hashtag, this research applies thematic analysis and the Social Identity Model of Deindividuation Effects to reveal how counternarratives of disability are developed and circulated via cyberactivism. Findings reveal that #boycottautismspeaks contributors communicated to enhance bonding through (a) (dis)identification, (b) collaboration, and (c) creative resistance. In addition, they communicated to facilitate bridging by (a) demonstrating morality, (b) appealing to humanity, and (c) aligning with other causes. The #boycottautismspeaks movement melded the logic of collective and connective action, provided opportunities for both coordinated and self-directed activity, developing a network of networks through various stitching mechanisms, and cultivating an affective public. Implications for cyberactivism research and practice as well as disability advocacy are discussed.

This Memorandum contains a highly detailed program listing for the Logic Theory Machine (LT), a computer program written in Information Processing Language-V (IPL-V), and developed especially for use as a pedagogical model. The text portions of the Memorandum expand upon the documentation in the listing, tracing program flow, analyzing routines utilized, and providing insight into the structure and the development of the program. LT was originally programmed in an early version of IPL by Newell, Shaw, and Simon to derive proofs of logic expressions in the sentential calculus of Whitehead and Russell. In rewriting the program for use as a teaching aid, a new method of replacement on subexpressions has been included, and many minor changes effecting improvements in clarity have been incorporated. Features of the code that were unjustifiably hard to explain have been simplified. The Memorandum defines LT's activity in terms of problem solving, and then a representation of the defined problem is given in terms of IPL-V. Finally, what LT does is discussed in terms of process hierarchies which operate on the lists structure representations of logic expressions. (Author).

Nonclassical logics have played an increasing role in recent years in disciplines ranging from mathematics and computer science to linguistics and philosophy. Generalized Galois Logics develops a uniform framework of relational semantics to mediate between logical calculi and their semantics through algebra. This volume addresses normal modal logics such as K and S5, and substructural logics, including relevance logics, linear logic, and Lambek calculi. The authors also treat less-familiar and new logical systems with equal deftness.
