Abstract: The dissertation explores the engagement of online media for political mobilization by movements of dissent from the margins based on case studies of five organizations representing ethnic, ethno-religious, and sexual minorities in the Philippines. Using Scott¿s notion of "hidden transcripts" and Feenberg¿s "democratic rationalization of technology", the thesis explores strategic approaches and historical, social, and political conditions embedded in the construction, negotiation, and transformation of minority online activist media. By distinguishing between the open, declared forms of online political mobilization as well as the undeclared forms of resistance which constitute minorities¿ negotiation of political mobilization amidst enabling and constraining structures surrounding their minoritization and online activism, the thesis surfaces ways of rethinking minority agency within a technological discourse. The thesis argues that strategies of online political discourse foregrounding hidden transcripts, infrapolitics, and subpolitics, which help minorities to circumvent traditional barriers of political communication, are crucial in understanding online dissent.
