Making Sense of Zhoriben: The Story of a Romani Social Networking Site in Hungary

The MIT's International Journal of Learning and Media (IJLM) published an article by CMCS Coordinator/Researcher Eva Bognar and Judit Szakács, of CEU's Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, in its Winter 2010 issue, called "Making Sense of Zhoriben: The Story of a Romani Social Networking Site in Hungary". The issue, which is largely based on research undertaken in the course of a project called CivicWeb which the CMCS was a partner in, includes seven articles on subjects related to young people, the Internet and civic participation. The article by Eva and Judit presents a case study of Zhoriben, a Hungarian social networking site for the Roma ethnic minority. The article illustrates the potential role the Internet can play in civic society and for ethnic minorities in particular.
