New publication: “Inequitable Distributions in Internet Geographies: The Global South is Gaining Access But Lags in Local Content.”
A special issue of the journal innovations has just been published. The issue focused on the topic of ‘digital inclusion’ and features a short piece that I wrote.
Graham, M. 2014 Inequitable Distributions in Internet Geographies: The Global South is Gaining Access But Lags in Local Content. innovations 9(3-4). 17-34.
The piece asks whether increasing Internet access around the world is resulting in a levelling of digital participation, or if we are seeing older patterns of visibility, representation, and power be reproduced. The piece is open-access and I’d welcome thoughts or comments on it.
