Giving voice to the voiceless: the use of digital technologies by marginalized groups
This paper reports on a workshop hosted at the Isenberg School of Management - University of Massachusetts Amherst in September 2018. The workshop title, “Giving Voice to the Voiceless: The Use of Digital Technologies by Marginalized Groups,” was organized to discuss how marginalized groups use digital technologies to raise their voices. At the workshop, a diverse group of scholars and Ph.D. students presented research projects and perspectives on the role of digital technologies on activist projects representing marginalized groups that have gained momentum in the last few years. The studies and viewpoints presented shed light on four areas in which IS research can expand our understanding of the use of digital technologies by marginalized groups to address societal challenges: 1) The Rise of Cyberactivism; 2) Resource Mobilization for Cyberactivism; 3) Cyberactivism by and with Marginalized Groups; and 4) Research Methods for Collaborations with Marginalized Groups.

Abstract

This paper reports on a workshop hosted at the Isenberg School of Management - University of Massachusetts Amherst in September 2018. The workshop title, “Giving Voice to the Voiceless: The Use of Digital Technologies by Marginalized Groups,” was organized to discuss how marginalized groups use digital technologies to raise their voices. At the workshop, a diverse group of scholars and Ph.D. students presented research projects and perspectives on the role of digital technologies on activist projects representing marginalized groups that have gained momentum in the last few years. The studies and viewpoints presented shed light on four areas in which IS research can expand our understanding of the use of digital technologies by marginalized groups to address societal challenges: 1) The Rise of Cyberactivism; 2) Resource Mobilization for Cyberactivism; 3) Cyberactivism by and with Marginalized Groups; and 4) Research Methods for Collaborations with Marginalized Groups.
