Abstract

A U.S. Department of State funded program, the Ben Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Summer Institute, has taught hundreds of high-school aged students from Eurasia and the United States practices of democratic deliberation using networked media. A survey of the program’s curricular innovations since 2006, involving integration of YouTube, Facebook, and documentary film, yields insight on how the advent and circulation of “(de-)liberation” technologies present pathways for young students to practice efficacious and convivial forms of cosmopolitan citizenship in our digital age.
