Cyberpsychology explores the connections between modes of information and the management of the individual in the context of new technologies. Tracing historical and contemporary lines of argument, the text brings together psychologists and cultural theorists working in the spheres of technology and subjectivity to explore links between popular culture, technoscience, feminism, ethics and politics. Wide-ranging and provocative, each chapter engages with mainstream psychological research and critical social trends to explore issues such as the collapse of memory and creativity and the applications of virtual technologies to the lives of people with disabilities. It is essential reading for anyone interested in critical psychology and the developing communications media.
