Where does culture end and technology begin?

Overview

Where does culture end and technology begin? Technoscience and Cyberculture argues that technology is culture, saturating our world so that technology has become the dominant discourse in politics, medicine, the media, religion, and everyday life itself. In Technoscience and Cyberculture, critics, writers, and theorists explore and develop a new, technology-centered method of cultural analysis. How do technology and science relate to one another? How do they organize, orient, and even create the landscape and inhabitants of contemporary culture? The essays in this book demonstrate that while "technology" "science," and "culture" can be distinguished from one another they are now so intertwined that to critique one is already to implicate the others; "technology" is not just one more set of objects.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Smart bombs, genetics, and weather satellites are a few of the jumping-off points for the 18 academic papers collected here. Presented at a CUNY conference in the spring of 1994, these essays investigate the interaction primarily of U.S. culture, science, and technology, with some comparison or contrast to other cultures. Each author's unique voice is evident. Many topics include examples from the authors's ongoing research. Readers well versed in cultural studies will benefit the most from these discussions. Recommended for history of science and cultural studies collections.Michael D. Cramer, Virginia Polytechnic & State Univ. Libs., Blacksburg
