A Networked Self and Love - A Networked Self (Hardback)Zizi Papacharissi (editor)
- We can order this
We fall in love every day, with others, with ideas, with ourselves. Stories of love excite us and baffle us. This volume is about love and the networked self. It focuses on how love forms, grows, or dissolves. Chapters address how relationships of love develop, are sustained or broken up through technologies of expression and connection. Authors explore how technologies reproduce, reorganize, or reimagine our dominant rituals of love. Contributors also address what our experiences with love teach us about ourselves, others, and the art of living. Every love story has a beginning and an end. Technology does not give love the kiss of eternity; but it can afford love new meaning.

"Gathering a dozen different angles on how technology and relationships are interwoven, this delightful book reveals the inconsistent and complicated ways in which love manifests - or is crushed - in contemporary society and how technology introduces countless new twists and turns to an already curvy path. Filled with heartbreak and passionate joy, A Networked Self and Love is a refreshing take on technology's role in the intimate parts of society."

"Like media, love is everywhere. This volume brings love back into the field of media studies - where it belongs. I'm loving it!" - Mark Deuze, University of Amsterdam
