About this Item

This work explores key dimensions of digitized imagination, ranging from Science and Cinema to citizenship and bazaars. Examining Complex and profound implications of digital Technology in the contemporary milieu, the book Maps the multiple Ways in which the `new` media rewrites the `old`, and the dilemmas and issues that they pitch, questioning, in turn, received notions of knowledge, legality, ethics, privacy, identity and community. It argues that the old and the new media are neither radically different nor the same. Tracing the Transition from the `broadly knowledgeable` 16 century scholar of literature to today`s specialist in linguistics, the book highlights the paradox that the fantastic speed of Knowledge growth also entails that we know less and less of the whole, with each succeeding era. Many of a the contributions in this volume address these issues in the context of India and other developing Nations of the south, focusing on how users negotiate and adapt technology in a digital culture that appropriates a cohesive body of knowledge across disciplines, and how this creates new configurations of power and resistance in the process.
