Rapidly emerging technologies have become a crucial component of movement and contention, ranging from strikes and protests to riots and civil disobedience to revolution and war. We have witnessed the widespread use of digitally mediated communication during large-scale political protests in promoting social justice like Black Lives Matter and the #MeToo movement, but also intelligence and information warfare that contribute to precise strikes, effective surveillance, and reconnaissance in Russia’s war against Ukraine. Interest in this field endures, while interrogation of the role of technology in movement proliferates. Still, contestation over the nature and degree of effectiveness of technology in movement and contention remains. And theoretical and methodological reflections are badly needed to identify challenges and opportunities for advancing the field.
