Trevor is also the author of a book called “Identity Politics: Getting to Know You, Getting to Know All About You” .
One facet of identity, which is currently undergoing radical transformation due to technology and specifically social media, is the concept of identity politics. Identity politics describes the manner with which people’s politics are crafted by aspects of their identity through loosely correlated social entities. Digital identity politics has given rise to the emergence of concepts such as ‘alterative facts’, ‘fake news’, and ‘post truth’. This book explores how various techniques such as magical realism, digital fascism, gaslighting, digital rubbernecking are being used by politicians to construct digital narratives. The book also discusses how technological developments such as social media, cloud computing, blockchain, and artificial intelligence are now shaping the contours of digital politics. The book concludes with a focus on the urgent need for digital literacy, which represents a Totem which every person can use to decipher fact from fiction in the emerging post-truth digital era.
