Ignorance and Illegibility
- 230 Downloads
The final chapter assesses the current conjuncture as one in which both democracy and authoritarianism are under threat. It returns to questions surrounding the government’s attempts to produce public ignorance and illegibility, and examines grassroots media interventions that exploit gaps and absences that are themselves created by the Sandinista’s own strategic efforts. These popular interventions mobilize counter-discourses and counter-knowledges that rearticulate official modes of sensemaking and thus help to maintain the conditions of possibility for decoloniality and democratization.
