Hi Thomas,

Since I am particularly interested in indigenous people(‘)s information and communication technology as well as new media practices, I suggest for the Latin American case the following resources:

Belausteguigoitia, Marisa: On line, off line and in line: The Zapatista rebellion and the use of technology by Indian women. In: Landzelius, Kyra (ed.): Native on the net: Indigenous and diasporic peoples in the virtual age. London/ New York: Routledge 2006, 97-111.

Everett, Margaret: Latin America On-Line: The Internet, Development, and Democratization. In: Human Organization, 57(4), 1998, 385-393.

Landzelius, Kyra (ed.): Native on the net: Indigenous and diasporic peoples in the virtual age. London/ New York: Routledge 2006.

Salazar, Juan Francisco: Indigenous Peoples and the Cultural Construction of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Latin America. In: Dyson, Laurel Evelyn/ Hendriks, Max/ Grant, Stephen (ed.): Information Technology and Indigenous People. Hershey, London, Melbourne, Singapore: Information Science Publishing 2007, 14-26.

and if you read German:

Budka, Philipp & Trupp, Claudia. 2009. Indigener Cyberaktivismus und transnationale Bewegungslandschaften im lateinamerikanischen Kontext (Indigenous cyberactivism and transnational landscapes of movement in the Latin American context). In Kastner, J. & Waibel, T. (eds.), “… mit Hilfe der Zeichen / por medio de signos…” Transnationalismus, soziale Bewegungen und kulturelle Praktiken in Lateinamerika. Münster: LIT-Verlag.

Salazar has also published in the field of visual anthropology, e.g.:

Salazar, J. F. 2008, ‘Making Culture Visible: The Mediated Construction of a Mapuche Nation in Chile’, in, Stein, L., Rodriquez, C. & Kidd, D. (eds), Making Our Media: Global Initiatives Toward a Democratic Public Sphere – Volume 1, Cresshill, NJ: Hampton Press.

Salazar, J. F. & Cordova, A. 2008, ‘Imperfect Media: The Poetics of Indigenous Video in Latin America’, in, Stewart, M. & Wilson, P. (eds), Global Indigenous Media: Cultures, Poetics, and Politics, Durham, NC & London: Duke University Press, pp 39-57.
