Product Description

Review

"Leaver’s Artificial Culture is a positive step in our greater understanding of contemporary culture, and I applaud his attempts at grappling with literary and film media in a single volume. […] Libraries are encouraged to purchase a copy because its breadth of research topics and theoretical approaches will appeal to a broad base of scholars." - Jason W. Ellis, CUNY

"Artificial Culture is a wide-ranging and well-researched analysis of some important cultural sites that share crucial features of ‘artificiality’, specifically technologically driven artificiality... Leaver is careful to foreground the specificities of cultural media, especially of film...[it would] be an appropriate text to include in graduate courses." - Veronica Hollinger, Trent University

"Leaver probes productively at the destabilised boundary between technologies and humans, using the notion of the artificial and the site of the body to map some of the ways contemporary identities and subjectivities are being influenced by both technologies and the rhetoric of the artificial more broadly." - Tully Barnett, Flinders University

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
