2024 | ISBN: 1666952192 | English | 172 pages | EPUB | 1 MB

Superheroes and Digital Perspectives: Super Data examines the intersection of the superhero genre and issues of the internet, data, and digital media to provide not only a posthuman study of the superhero, but also an examination of the ways in which the superhero acts as a lens for our interactions with technology. Contributions to this collection range from the virality of the superhero as political expression to human-nonhuman relations, social expectations, and trends in cultural products. Providing fruitful, rigorous analysis of this genre in the context of ubiquitous handheld networked technology, social media, and data harvesting techniques, this book will be of particular interest to scholars of media studies, posthuman studies, communication, and popular culture.
