Indigenous People and Mobile Technologies

New book in the Routledge Studies in New Media and Cyberculture series!

Indigenous People and Mobile Technologies examines how mobile technologies are being embraced by Indigenous people. I contributed to the volume with the chapter “Mobile technology in Indigenous Landscape” about a mobile linguistic landscape in Sápmi.

“This book explores how mobile technologies are overcoming disadvantage and the tyrannies of distance, allowing benefits to flow directly to Indigenous people and bringing wide-ranging changes to their lives. It begins with general issues and theoretical perspectives followed by empirical case studies that include the establishment of Indigenous mobile networks and practices, mobile technologies for social change and, finally, the ways in which mobile technology is being used to sustain Indigenous culture and language.”
