Visions of Modernity explores the relationship between technology, society and identity that underpins contemporary 'media culture'. By tracing particular historical shifts as they have intersected with different camera technologies - photography, cinema, television - Scott Mc Quire engages with broad social and political transformations. Focusing on the camera, Mc Quire offers a useful point of entry for understanding the processes of modernization and the dramatic changes - perceptual, experiential and epistemological - that characterize modernity.
Visions of Modernity will be of interest to students of sociology, media and cultural studies, art history, geography and anthropology.
