Abstract:
This thesis examines how a particular technology, the Internet, is entangled with globalisation and postcolonial phenomena in the specific case of Cape Verde (a group of islands in West Africa). Globalisation and postcolonialism are here examined as historical macro-processes. The thesis links these macro-processes with the micro-practices of everyday life in relation to the production, circulation and consumption of the Internet.
