Latin American Identity in Online Cultural Production

Overview

This volume provides an innovative and timely approach to a fast growing, yet still under-studied field in Latin American cultural production: digital online culture. It focuses on the transformations or continuations that cultural products and practices such as hypermedia fictions, net.art and online performance art, as well as blogs, films, databases and other genre-defying web-based projects, perform with respect to Latin American(ist) discourses, as well as their often contestatory positioning with respect to...

Overview

This volume provides an innovative and timely approach to a fast growing, yet still under-studied field in Latin American cultural production: digital online culture. It focuses on the transformations or continuations that cultural products and practices such as hypermedia fictions, net.art and online performance art, as well as blogs, films, databases and other genre-defying web-based projects, perform with respect to Latin American(ist) discourses, as well as their often contestatory positioning with respect to Western hegemonic discourses as they circulate online. The intellectual rationale for the volume is located at the crossroads of two, equally important, theoretical strands: theories of digital culture, in their majority the product of the anglophone academy; and contemporary debates on Latin American identity and culture.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is an original contribution to an exciting new field and provides a grounding for cybercultural studies in the historical framework of Latin American cultural studies as well as in Anglo-American cybercultural critical discourses."

Scott Weintraub, The University of New Hampshire

"Taylor and Pitman, the leading scholars in this subject, have given a new epistemological look at Latin American culture and its lettered citizens—including USA Latinidad—by acknowledging and analyzing the (frequently contestatory) cybernetic turn in the region. No study like this has been attempted before and it is a long overdue approach within Latin American Cultural Studies. Scholars, students, and generalist readers will find extremely engaging each of the chapters covering the interplay between cultural products/practices and the cyber condition of our times. This superbly researched book is the necessary cartographical guide to navigate the re-imagined/remediated identity in Latin America."

Luis Correa-Díaz, University of Georgia
