Abstract:

"Beginning with an introduction to the Web and how it works, followed by the theories and methods of cyberculture studies, Web.Studies moves on to consider everyday Web life, art and culture, Web business, and global Web communities, politics and protest. Topics covered range from personal and fan websites, cyber-sexualities, webcams and Web-based art and entertainment, to global capitalism and the fight for Web domination, cybercrime and internet propaganda. Uniquely, the book combines studies of the Web's artistic and creative possibilities with political, economic and international perspectives. Each chapter includes suggestions for ways in which students can use the Web to further their own research; there are also lists of useful websites, a glossary and a bibliography."--BOOK JACKET.
