About the book:  Most books on young people in the global South focus on how Gen Z consumes content and are thus receivers of global cultural flows. "Gen Z, Digital Media, and Transcultural Lives: At Home in the World" offers narrative exploration of how Gen Z in the global South uses digital media and technologies to not only engage with global cultural content, but also create content for employment, leisure, advocacy, and awareness. This book offers a new perspective that illustrates how this generation practices playful resilience in engaging with global flows and local realities.
