Understanding Digital Culture (Hardback)

£85.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

From profiling databases and mashups to cybersex and the truth about social networking, Miller's insightful second edition traces the pervasive influence of 'digital culture' throughout contemporary life.







He integrates socio-economic understandings of the 'information society' with the cultural studies approach to production, use, and consumption of digital media and multimedia. Still refreshingly readable and packed with new examples; Understanding Digital Culture:





Includes new and updated material on work and commodity production in digital capitalism, "slacktivism", industrial espionage and major bank hacks, the rise of mobile dating apps, and cyber-bullying alongside trolling.

Unpacks how the information society is transforming and challenging traditional notions of crime, resistance, war and protest, community, intimacy and belonging.

Crosses disciplines to give a balanced account of the social, economic and cultural dimensions of the information society.

Illuminates the increasing importance of mobile, wireless and converged media technologies in everyday life.

Charts the changing cultural forms associated with new media and its consumption, including music, gaming, microblogging and online identity.

Illustrates the above through a series of contemporary, in-depth case studies of digital culture.





This is the perfect text for students looking for a full account of the information society, virtual cultures, sociology of the Internet and new media.
