Author Biography - Armand Mattelart

Critically, Mattelart asks why the notion has come to be dominant in the absence of any critical examination of the conditions under which it has been produced. Combining a long-term historical and geopolitical perspective, Mattelart questions the axioms used to legitimate the information society and critically assesses the ways in which it has been conceptualized as a theoretical concept as well as a policy making tool.
