NeMLA 2020:From Hillary C to AOC: Social Media and Women’s Voices in the Public Sphere

updated: 
Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 11:59am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

Boosted by Barak Obama’s revolutionary usage of social media in 2008 to mobilize young voters and energize a new party base, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign also sought to make strategic use of social media platforms—as did her opponent’s, with dramatically different results. In 2019, rising political star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been acknowledged as a master of social media for her usage of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram—platforms where her followers number in the millions. For AOC, strategic utilization of social media in a limited congressional district campaign led directly to national prominence and increased presence within traditional print and television media platforms for her policy propositions.
