This interdisciplinary cultural study of the new technologies discusses cyberculture as it mediates, and in turn is mediated by, the contexts of globalisation, politics, medical science and war, and the realms of everyday life such as learning, identity, consumption, and leisure. It pays attention to common and visible expressions of technoculture - including music videos, niche marketing, literature, and cosmetic surgery - in order to highlight its distinguishing features. Using a range of insights from theorists such as Donna Haraway, Stuart Hall, Manuel Castells, Paul Virilio and Katherine Hayles, "Virtual Worlds" explores the dissemination of cybertechnology into the social and political fields.


這本跨學科的文化研究探討新科技如何在全球化、政治、醫學科學、戰爭以及日常生活的學習、身份、消費和休閒等領域中進行媒介,同時也受到這些背景的影響。它關注科技文化的常見和顯著表現形式,包括音樂視頻、利基市場、文學和整容手術,以突出其獨特的特點。《虛擬世界》利用Donna Haraway、Stuart Hall、Manuel Castells、Paul Virilio和Katherine Hayles等理論家的多種見解,探討了資訊技術在社會和政治領域中的傳播。
