✏The Photographic Image in Digital Culture Book Summary : What does a new technology of images mean for the ways in which we encounter and use images in everyday life: in advertising, entertainment, news, evidence? And within our domestic and private worlds for our sense of self and indentity; our view of the body and our sexuality? The Photographic Image in Digital Culture explores the technological transformation of the image and its implications for photography. Contributors investigate such issues as the relationship of technological change to visual culture; the new discourses of `techno-culture'; medicine's new vision of the body, and interactive pornography. They also examine the cultural meanings of new surveillance images; shifts in the domestic consumption of images and their relationship to memory, history and biography; the social uses of video and computer games and the changing role of photography as document and as art.

✏Culture Technology and Development Book Summary : This special issue provides a set of articles written by former colleagues and friends of Jan Hawkins--a member of a talented group of graduate students who participated in the weekly seminars held in what was then referred to as the Institute for Comparative Development during the mid-1970s. The single theme that brought together this diverse group of scholars and that dominates the papers in this issue is the belief in the value of human diversity not only as a resource for understanding human nature, but as a necessity for continued human development. The articles and commentaries testify that the ideas, practices, and values that Jan Hawkins helped to create in the mid-1970s are now found around the world.

✏Culture Technology and the Creation of America s National Parks Book Summary : Richard Grusin's innovative study investigates how the establishment of national parks participated in the production of American national identity after the Civil War. The creation of America's national parks is usually seen as an uncomplicated act of environmental preservation. Grusin argues, instead, that parks must be understood as complex cultural technologies for the reproduction of nature as landscape art. He explores the origins of America's three major parks - Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Grand Canyon--in relation to other forms of landscape representation including photography, mapping, travel writing and fiction.

✏The Writer s Craft the Culture s Technology Book Summary : The Writer's Craft, the Culture's Technology explores the multiple ways in which a culture's technological resources shape its literary productions. Literature and style cannot be divorced from the particular technologised culture that sponsors them. This has always been true, as papers here on literature from earlier periods show. But many of the papers focus on contemporary culture, where literature vies for attention with film, the internet, and other multimodal cultural forms. These essays, from an international array of experts, are stylistics-based but not stylistics-bound. They should be of interest to all who are interested in discourse analytic commentaries on how technological horizons, as always, continue to shape the forms and functions of literature and other cultural productions.

✏Image Making India Book Summary : Digital technologies are a hotly debated topic in contemporary India. Image-Making-India offers insight into a country where tensions boil regarding the use of the digital as promoted by the government, and the use of the digital in creating visual arts. Favero uses examples gathered from documentary and fiction film, photography, contemporary art, theatre and design, to illustrate the extent to which the 'digital' offers an opportunity to examine the significance of images and visual culture in the creation of cultural identity in a rapidly changing India. Based on ethnographic research into image-makers in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and the author's extensive lived experience of the culture, Favero interrogates the dialogue between visual culture, technology and changing notions of political participation in India. In so doing, he examines the dialectic between digital/visual practices and everyday life. Skilfully combining a pragmatic exploration of the evolving meaning of images in a digital landscape with an overarching theoretical framework, Favero moves towards an ingenious viewpoint on cultural transformation in contemporary India. This book is a hugely useful resource for those interested in visual and digital anthropology as well as Indian and South Asian studies.
