Abstract:

This essay addresses three key issues for critical-cultural studies: posthumanism, network infrastructures, and sustainability. The examples of Google Glass, Google's “Data Centers” online photo gallery, and James Cameron's film Avatar are used to briefly elaborate on the importance of these issues for critical-cultural studies, and to argue for the integration of materialist and representational forms of analysis.

Keywords: Posthumanism; e-waste; material culture; media waste; network infrastructures; sustainability
