Culture and Technology

by Andrew Murphie, John Potts

Culture and Technology Synopsis

We are 'going virtual' in more and more areas of our lives - from shopping to education, filing systems to love affairs. How can we assess the relationship between technology and culture when culture is so imbued with technology? This clear, concise and readable text aims to offer the student a one-stop guide through this complex and slippery terrain. Introducing a wealth of theoretical perspectives in a lucid and engaging style and covering a range of topical, challenging and intriguing examples - from cyborgs to digital art - it will be an essential text for everyone wanting to make sense of crucial forces of change on contemporary culture.

Culture and Technology Press Reviews

'Culture and Technology should be very much at home on the required reading lists of courses in philosophy, cultural studies, media studies, sociology, new media and political economy. Potts' and Murphie's prose is clear and user-friendly, as all good code should be. As such, it should also provide the general reader with an accessible and intelligent introduction to these fields as they relate to culture and technology.' - Lisa Gye, Real Time Arts 'Culture and Technology appeals to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. A sophisticated text.' - Darren Tofts, The Electronic Book Review '...I know of no other book that covers this massively important field (more of a country than a field) so thoroughly and clearly.' - Maurice B. Line, Journal of Documentation 'A wonderful text including philosophical, theoretical and practical approaches to the general concerns of the symbiotic relationship of culture and technology.' - Tim Detwiler, Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies
