Rezensionen
"This collection provides an important contribution to the emerging field of cyberculture studies. By assembling essays that consider technology from a variety of angles, the editors reveal the blind spots of new media theories, postcolonial theory, and diaspora studies. The volume elucidates the remarkable woof and warp of labor, education, and communication strategies, using South Asia as place to complicate prevailing assumptions concerning globalized cyberspace and the advent of worldwide participation in digital technologies." (from the preface by Jillana Enteen, Northwestern University)
