Rethinking civic computing in China
Civic computing research is concerned with the relationship of digital technologies to civic participation. This paper describes a qualitative study of Chinese mainland citizens who used technologies to understand and participate in political events, in particular the Hong Kong Umbrella Movement. A care of the self — in a Foucauldian sense — offers an alternative perspective for rethinking civic participation and computing.
