University of Cape Town

1. Mbenga, Chilombo. Exploring South African youths' on/offline political participation.

Degree: Image, Centre for Film and Media Studies, 2012, University of Cape Town

This study is located between the contradiction that youth is politically disinterested and that youth is very much politically engaged. Some scholars have argued that youth political disinterest is a threat to the life of the traditional public sphere and democracy. Against the notion of the youth's disinterest and disaffection from politics, this study points out the deficit in exploratory studies that examine and explore the relationship between young people and their political participation both in the on/offline context. In light of the contradiction as well, this current study asked the following question: how does a group of South African youth use social media to participate in the virtual public sphere? Also, what are the views of a group of South African youth about political participation (via their use of traditional and new/social media)? Advisors/Committee Members: Ndlovu, Musa (advisor), Walton, Marion (advisor).
