Description - Virtual Geographies by Mike Crang

Virtual Geographies explores the possibilities and dangers brought by the revolution in communication technologies, outlining how these technologies are being used to produce new geographies and new types of space. The contributors reveal that new communication technologies open up whole new vistas. Leading contributors drawn from a wide range of disciplines including Geography, Sociology, English and Philosophy investigate how particular visions of cyberspace have been constructed and articulated through the influence of literature and gender, and how the experience of online interaction is expressed. A scepticism emerges of the consequences of 'cyberspace'. This leads to a critical assessment of the status of virtual environments and geographies, how they interact with more everyday spaces and how they may reshape how we think and write about the world. Virtual Geographies sets recent developments in a more developed historical and geographical context, enabling a clearer assessment of the possibilities such developments hold for the creation of new spaces of interaction.
