Abstract: This doctoral thesis provides an examination of the emergence and the institutionalization of an activist expertise on Twitter by the CLAC (Convergence des Luttes Anticapitalistes) and an investigation of the group social and intertextual processing with alternative and global media during the G20 in Toronto (2010) and the Quebecer Student strike (2012). Mixed methods and online exploration are used to build a transformative integrative multidimensional methodology for analysing web hypertextual practices. This research strategy allows for the observation, analysis and interpretation of peer groups mediated practices and enables to formulate research recommendations for methodologies exploring the complexity of new media convergence (Castells, 1998, 1999, 2001; Jenkins, 2006) and the formation of ad hoc publics during political crisis (Bruns, 2007 ; Bruns et al., 2010). Under the theoretical and conceptual position of expertise, activism and hypertext, specific forms of activist communication in micro-media, influence and power dynamics in local public sphere and new modes of contagion of local information on public deliberation main themes and practices (Habermas, 1978, 1987) will be explored. Finally, advantages and limits of the mixed methods approach and directions for future research are discussed.
