New Publication: “Macaca Moments Revisited… Electoral Panopticon or Netroots Mobilization?”

A revised version of my conference paper for the “YouTube and the 2008 Election” Conference has now been accepted for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Information Technology and Politics.  This paper offers a pair of case studies on the 2006 Virginia Senate race (Allen v Webb) and the 2008 MN-06 House race (Bachmann v Tinklenberg) to make the argument that so-called “Macaca Moments” have more to do with netroots political mobilization than with the new media environment provided by YouTube.

A pre-publication version of the piece is available on my “Conference Papers and Published Works” page.  This will be substituted with a link to the actual article once it is published.
