Navigating Technomedia : Caught in the Web, Paperback / softback Book

Navigating Technomedia : Caught in the Web Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

From email to video and text messaging, so much of our present social life depends on media technologies.

Today it is clearer than ever that these not only play an active part in our everyday lives, but constitute our increasingly global realities.

Caught in the Web argues for a new approach to media theory that allows technomedia to be studied on its own terms.

Engaging in sociology, social theory, philosophy, and media studies, it provides an analysis of contemporary media technologies through the lens of various themes, including the modernity/postmodernity debate, the state of knowledge, space/time, and cultural politics in our contemporary information age.

At once an introduction to concepts in media studies and a critical work, Caught in the Web attempts to situate high theory in everyday life.
