    Surviving in Abeyance: Digital Networks and Resistance in Hong Kong after the Anti-Extradition Bill Movement

    As Hong Kong’s 2019-20 Anti-Extradition Bill Movement ended under the pressure of the new National Security Law, activist networks find their ways of survival by shifting to other arenas that are less controlled by the regime: consumer marketplace, fan culture, and overseas diasporic communities. Taking these social networks as case studies, this project asks: what new forms of connection and resistance are enabled by digital technologies after the Anti-ELAB movement has ended, and how do these tactics impact political struggles in non-democratic societies like Hong Kong?

    Supervisors: Jeroen de Kloet, Leonie Schmidt
