Beschreibung

This interdisciplinary cultural study of the new technologies discusses cyberculture as it mediatesand in turn is mediated bythe contexts of globalisation, politics, medical science and war, and the realms of everyday life such as learning, identity, consumption, and leisure. It pays attention to common and visible expressions of technocultureincluding music videos, niche marketing, literature, and cosmetic surgeryin order to highlight its distinguishing features. Using a range of insights from theorists such as Donna Haraway, Stuart Hall, Manuel Castells, Paul Virilio and Katherine Hayles, Virtual Worlds explores the dissemination of cybertechnology into the social and political fields.
