|Title:||The hegemonic work of automated election technology in the Philippines||Authors:||Luyt, Brendan||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Computer science and engineering::Information systems||Issue Date:||2007||Source:||Luyt, B. (2007). The hegemonic work of automated election technology in the Philippines. Journal of Contemporary Asia, 37(2), 139-165.||Series/Report no.:||Journal of contemporary Asia||Abstract:||This article addresses the political role of information technology in the Philippines. It uses a theoretical framework inspired by Antonio Gramsci to examine the discourse surrounding automated elections in two major daily papers, the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Business World Philippines. It argues that this discourse strengthens current conceptions of the development process by appealing to the interests not only of the dominant fraction of capital in the country today, but also to the middle class. Such operations are essential for the creation of an historic bloc capable of exercising hegemony.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/95300
