The Routledge Handbook of Media and Technology Domestication
This Handbook offers a comprehensive overview of media domestication – the process of appropriating new media and technology – and delves into the theoretical, conceptual and social implications of the field's advancement.
Combining the work of the long-established experts in the field with that of emerging scholars, the chapters explore both the domestication concept itself and domestication processes in a wide range of fields, from smartphones used to monitor drug use to the question of time in the domestication of energy buildings. The international team of authors provide an accessible and thorough assessment of key issues, themes and problems with and within domestication research, and showcase the most important developments over the years.
This truly interdisciplinary collection will be an important resource for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and academic scholars in media, communication and cultural studies, sociology, anthropology, cultural geography, design studies and social studies of technology.
