Digital political campaigning surrounds us, yet little is understood about the how the use of these technologies reflects and contributes to new understandings of political participation and citizenship in the digital age. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in a federal level election, interviews with communications and digital media consultants, and textual analysis of campaign materials, Baldwin-Philippi’s work traces the emergence and solidification of digital campaign strategies since Obama’s groundbreaking 2008 campaign, and investigates their implications for what it means to be a citizen in a digital world.
