Publisher Comments:


Networks and computer-mediated communication now penetrate the spaces of everyday life at a fundamental level. We communicate, work, bank, date, check the weather, and fuel conspiracy theories online. In each instance, users interact with network technology as much more than a computational device.

Cyberspaces of Everyday Life provides a critical framework for understanding how the Internet takes part in the production of social space. Mark Nunes draws on the spatial analysis work of Henri Lefebvre to make sense of cyberspace as a social product. Looking at online education, he explores the ways in which the Internet restructures the university. Nunes also examines social uses of the World Wide Web and illustrates the ways online communication alters the relation between the global and the local. He also applies Deleuzian theory to emphasize computer-mediated communications’ performative elements of spatial production.

Addressing the social and cultural implications of spam and anti-spam legislation, as well as how the burst Internet stock bubble and the Patriot Act have affected the relationship between networked spaces and daily living, Cyberspaces of Everyday Life sheds new light on the question of virtual space and its role in the offline world.

Mark Nunes is associate professor and chair of the humanities department at Georgia Perimeter College, Clarkston Campus.

Book News Annotation:

Nunes (English, technical communications and media arts, Southern Polytechnic State U., Marietta, Georgia) examines the ways in which computer-mediated communication (CMC) takes part in spaces of everyday life. Coverage includes an overview of the emerging field of scholarship that has addressed the spatiality of CMC, presentation of a theoretical framework for considering the reality of cyberspace as lived space, and application of the framework to specific examples of social space in a network society. These include discussion of how web pages construct sites that enact spaces of control for their users; a comparison of the rise of the British postal system in the 17th century and the growth of e-mail today as a common medium of exchange; and how CMC is restructuring the university, through both distance education and computer-aided instruction.
