Overview

Technoculture is culture--such is the proposition posited in Technoscience and Cyberculture, arguing that technology's permeation of the cultural landscape has so irrevocably reconstituted this terrain that technology emerges as the dominant discourse in politics, medicine and everyday life. The problems addressed in Technoscience and Cyberculture concern the ways in which technology and science relate to one another and organize, orient and effect the landscape and inhabitants of contemporary culture.

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
