Simulation in Media and Culture: Believing the Hype, is a new edited collection by Robin DeRosa which considers the role and function of "simulation" in contemporary culture. Drawing on theories of the simulacra from Jean Baudrillard, the collection looks at the hyperreal—the state of being more real than the real—in television, film, gaming, and cultural identity. DeRosa's collection covers diverse content: from celebrity socialites to cooking shows on TV; from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Jesus Christ on the big screen; from Farmville to Extreme Championship Wrestling in the world of games; and from the new German avant-garde to Florida Studies in its treatment of postmodern identities and cultures. Robin DeRosa's Simulation in Media and Culture: Believing the Hype asks new questions—ethical, entertaining, and epistemological—about how we can understand the shifting nature of the real.

About the Author:

Robin DeRosa is associate professor of English and women's studies at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.

Review:

Simulation in Media and Culture: Believing the Hype, edited by Robin DeRosa, is an updating of Baudrillard's theory of the simulacra for our current cultural moment. This collection examines the condition of hyperreality in four arenas of contemporary life: television, film, gaming, and the politics of place. By revisioning classic examples of the simulacra, such as reality television and online worlds, Simulation in Media and Culture aims to rethink simulation as it manifests in new and different ways.
