Beschreibung:

This is an introductory survey of what the author calls the 'technomedia', the generation of communication technologies after television, cell phones and the first wave of the Internet. Beginning with a history of media, the book explores the nature and effects of technomedia like the blogosphere, Blackberries and related technologies. Because they are transforming the relations of their users to the social environment, the topic is fast becoming an important focus of modern social theory.
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.
