Selected writings by Jean Baudrillard( Book )

45 editions published between 1988 and 2007 in English and held by 1,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kean Baudrillard is one of the most topical and controversial theorists in France today. He has played a major role in the development of critical social theory and cultural sociology, and his writings are currently at the center of the 'post-modernism' debate. This volume makes his most important work widely available in English for the first time. It includes selections from the entire range of his writings, from his early work on advertising and commodity culture to his most recent writings on simulation and desire. Throughout the selections Baudrillard stresses the ways in which our lives are embedded in a world if images which have no clear reference and which are reproduced by the new mechanisms of cultural production in contemporary societies. The central themes of Baudrillard's work are outlined in an introduction by Mark Poster. The selections in this volume represent a cross section of Baudrillard's writings from 1968 to 1985 and are drawn mostly from his major books. About half of the selections appear in English translation for the first time

Cultural history and postmodernity : disciplinary readings and challenges by Mark Poster( Book )

21 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a series of incisive readings of signature historical works, Mark Poster charts the move from social history to new practices of cultural history that are drawing strength from poststructuralist interpretive strategies and raising issues found in feminist and postcolonialist discourse. In the process, he sets forth an outline for a postmodern historiography that can negotiate the contested terrain between the ambiguities of discourse and the pull of the "real." As Poster provides close readings of leading historians and theorists such as Lawrence Stone, Francois Furet, Michel de Certeau, and Michel Foucault, key themes animate his work: the often irreducible difference between past and present; the relationship of writing and representation to power and domination; the dissolving distinctions between high and low culture, production and consumption, and reality and fiction; and, most important, a new perspective on human agency and the construction of political subjects
Information please : culture and politics in the age of digital machines by Mark Poster( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information Please advances the ongoing critical project of the media scholar Mark Poster: theorizing the social and cultural effects of electronically mediated information. In this book Poster conceptualizes a new relation of humans to information machines, a relation that avoids privileging either the human or the machine but instead focuses on the structures of their interactions. Synthesizing a broad range of critical theory, he explores how texts, images, and sounds are made different when they are mediated by information machines, how this difference affects individuals as well as social and political formations, and how it creates opportunities for progressive change

The second media age by Mark Poster( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the implications of new communication technologies in the light of the most recent work in social and cultural theory. Poster evaluates critically the concepts of media and technology in various traditions of cultural theory, with the aim of rethinking the relations of humans to machines. The author also examines theories of postmodernity in relation to the new media and the debate over multiculturalism. He argues that new developments in electronic media, such as the Internet and Virtual Reality, may so alter our habits of communication and so deeply reposition our identities that the designation "a second media age" is justified." "Poster assesses the contributions of theorists such as Baudrillard, Lyotard, Habermas, Haraway, and Guattari. He also develops further his own distinctive and original approach, building on his previous book The Mode of Information. Finally, Poster analyzes various cultural materials in light of his approach: Spike Lee's Do Right Thing, Richard Wagner's Ring on the Nibelung, and the televised reporting of the Gulf War." "The Second Media Age will be essential reading for students in media studies, cultural studies, sociology, and social theory."--Jacket
Does writing have a future? by Vilém Flusser( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title asks what will happen to thought and communication as written communication gives way, inevitably, to digital expression. In the introduction, it proposes that writing does not, in fact, have a future because everything that is now conveyed in writing - and much that cannot be - can be recorded and transmitted by other means. The balance of this book teases out the nuances of these developments
