Blog Theory deals a serious conception of up to date media. Furthering her account of communicative capitalism, Jodi Dean explores the methods new media practices like running a blog and texting catch their clients in in depth networks of pleasure, construction, and surveillance. Her wide-ranging and theoretically wealthy research extends from her own reviews as a blogger, via media histories, to newly rising social community structures and applications.

Set opposed to the history of the industrial concern wrought through neoliberalism, the ebook engages with contemporary paintings in modern media conception in addition to with thinkers similar to Giorgio Agamben, Jean Baudrillard, man Debord, Jacques Lacan, and Slavoj ?i?ek. via those engagements, Dean defends the provocative thesis that reflexivity in advanced networks is better understood through the psychoanalytic thought of the drives. She contends, furthermore, that analyzing networks when it comes to the drives allows us to know their genuine, human measurement, that's, the sentiments and impacts that embed us within the system.

In remarkably transparent and lucid prose, Dean hyperlinks likely trivial and transitory updates from the recent mass tradition of the net to extra primary alterations in subjectivity and politics. daily communicative exchangesÑfrom web publication posts to textual content messagesÑhave frequent results, results that not just undermine capacities for democracy but additionally entrap us in circuits of domination.
