Locative Media Hardback
Edited by Rowan (Swinburne University of Technology, Australia) Wilken, Gerard (University of Sydney, Australia) Goggin
Part of the Routledge Studies in New Media and Cyberculture series
Not only is locative media one of the fastest growing areas in digital technology, but questions of location and location-awareness are increasingly central to our contemporary engagements with online and mobile media, and indeed media and culture generally.
This volume is a comprehensive account of the various location-based technologies, services, applications, and cultures, as media, with an aim to identify, inventory, explore, and critique their cultural, economic, political, social, and policy dimensions internationally.
In particular, the collection is organized around the perception that the growth of locative media gives rise to a number of crucial questions concerning the areas of culture, economy, and policy.
