Rock formation : music, technology, and mass communication by Steve Jones( Book )

21 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Elvis, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones, to the heavy metal and punk movements of the last 10 years, rock music has often been praised for its joyful spontaneity and dogged rebelliousness. However, argues industry veteran Steve Jones, contrary to popular perception, rock music is in fact biased toward control, particularly by means of the technology employed in the recording process. Rock Formation examines the history and influence of recording technology on popular music and develops a critical analysis of the interplay between technology, sound, and creativity. It explains the connections between popular music, technology, and mass communication and questions how values--social, cultural, and musical--are transmitted through the process of recording. While there have been many studies of popular music's content and audience in the past 20 years, Rock Formation fills an important gap by exploring the mediation of the most pervasive form of cultural expression--popular music. For both music scholars and committed rock buffs, Rock Formation is an ideal introduction to the subject of popular music production. Jones' work is a study in culture production suitable for courses in popular culture, cultural studies, American studies, sociology, music and communication studies. --Publisher
Critical cyberculture studies by David Silver( )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting in the early 1990s, journalists and scholars began responding to and trying to take account of new technologies and their impact on our lives. By the end of the decade, the full-fledged study of cyberculture had arrived. Today, there exists a large body of critical work on the subject, with cutting-edge studies probing beyond the mere existence of virtual communities and online identities to examine the social, cultural, and economic relationships that take place online. Taking stock of the exciting work that is being done and positing what cyberculture's future might look like, Critical Cyberculture Studies brings together a diverse and multidisciplinary group of scholars from around the world to assess the state of the field. Opening with a historical overview of the field by its most prominent spokesperson, it goes on to highlight the interests and methodologies of a mobile and creative field, providing a much-needed how-to guide for those new to cyberstudies. The final two sections open up to explore issues of race, class, and gender and digital media's ties to capital and commerce-from the failure of dot-coms to free software and the hacking movement. --Publsher

The long history of new media : technology, historiography, and contextualizing newness( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the role of history in the study of new media and of newness itself; discussing how the new in new media must be understood to be historically constructed. Furthermore, the new is constructed with an eye on the future, or more correctly, an eye on what we think the future will be. Chapters by eminent scholars address the connection between historical consideration and new media. Some assess the historical descriptions of the development of new media; others hinge on the issue of newness as it relates to existing practices in media history. Remaining essays address the shifting patterns of storage at work in media inscription, as they relate to the practice of history, and to the past and contemporary cultural formations. Together they offer a ground-breaking assessment of the long history of new media, clearly recognizing that the new media of today will be the traditional media of tomorrow, and that an emphasis on the history of the future sheds light on what this newness can be said to represent

The Internet Goes to College: How Students are Living in the Future with Today's Technology by Steve Jones( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the Internet's impact on college students' daily lives and the impact of that use on their academic and social routines. Students from 27 colleges and universities participated. The sample was tested and found to be reflective of the national population of college students. Roughly half the students were given a questionnaire asking questions about their academic use of the Internet; and half were given a questionnaire dealing with their social uses of the Internet. In all, 2,054 surveys were returned. In addition, data was collected by a team of graduate student researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago observing behavior of college students at 10 Chicago area institutions of higher education. Additional material for the study was based on findings of surveys of Americans about their use of the Internet conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates in 2001 and 2002 for the Pew Internet & American Life Project. A Summary of Findings at the beginning of this report highlights results under three main findings: college students are early adopters and heavy users of the Internet; college students say the Internet has enhanced their education; and college social life has been changed by the Internet.
