Betty GSS 2017_5

My name is Elisabetta Ferrari.

I’m a PhD Candidate (ABD) at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research is about the social and political implications of digital communication technologies, with an emphasis on activism, social movements, and social justice. In general, my research explores how the ways in which people use and think about digital technologies play a role in their struggles for social justice. In my dissertation research, I study how contemporary activist groups in Italy, Hungary and the United States, construct and deploy discourses about technology in relation to social change.
