About this item

Lauren Rosewarne, author of ****** in Popular Culture, examines depictions of Internet users on the silver and blue screens, plumbing the meaning of film and TV stereotypes, such as the Geek, the Cyberperv, and the Hacker, and what they reveal about views of gender, sexuality, and technophobia. Rosewarne applies ideas from communications studies as well as sociology, feminist theory, and psychology to characters and tropes in films and TV shows made after 1990, noting that Internet users are generally portrayed negatively on screen, as deviants or evil-doers, and that the Internet is portrayed as something dangerous. Shows and films discussed include “21 Jump Street,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “Law and Order,” Chatroom, The Cyberstalking, Mr. Robot, and You’ve Got Mail. Rosewarne has written many other books on popular culture, including Menstruation in Popular Culture. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
