Getting a Life

The Social Worlds of Geek Culture

Auteur/ Illustrateur / Sous la direction de : Benjamin Woo

Comic book superheroes, fantasy kingdoms, and futuristic starships have become features of today’s popular culture, and the people once derided as “nerds” have ridden their popularity to mainstream recognition. Woo argues that typical depictions of mass-mediated entertainment as something that isolates and pacifies its audiences are flawed because they do not account for the conversations, relationships, communities, and identities that are created.
