Postcolonial Studies: Special Issue

‘Digital Culture’

Guest Edited by Mark Poster

Postcolonial studies is heavily affected by processes of globalisation. Among
these trends is the spread of networked computing and digital culture, from
email and websites, from Usenet to massively multiple online games and digital
art, from net news journals to blogs. Digital culture also affects the world
labour market as workers around the globe are recruited into high technology
jobs as diverse as assembly line production of computers, homeworked
programming of software and call centers where workers are taught the
rudiments of foreign (mostly American) cultures to enable telephone support
for products and services. New media, in short, are now global. This special
issue inquires into the consequences of such phenomena for the postcolonial
condition.
