Format: Paperback
For those of you with a soft spot for the anthropomorphized cartoon dog surfing the Internet, Lisa Nakamura abolishes such nostalgia, and misunderstanding. Half way through Digitizing Race, she coolly declares `...nobody believes anymore that on the Internet nobody knows you're a dog...' (p.155).Interrogating the myth of online disembodiment, and the concomitant deceit of neoliberal colour-blindness is what essentially coheres this book. Contrary to the utopian readings of techno-culture, analyzing Internet space as a site of racial re-embodiment is at the heart of Nakamura's project. ...

8 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Andrew D. Oram on November 28, 2009
Format: Paperback
An impressionistic and rambling review of several, barely related communities or Internet activities, this book says very little about Internet culture and its online representations. It is mostly a combination of studies done in the early to mid-2000 decade, and unfortunately does not have much to say about the enormous swelling of social networking sites that has occurred in just the past couple years. The book does have some intriguing and stimulating observations about the way unconventional Internet users (mostly women) see and reveal themselves on chat sites and on pregnancy forums. It is more comfortable showing how impressions and presentations of race in the larger culture are handled by online actors than analyzing those actors or the new media themselves.
