LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2002. 200pp looks unused. Technoscience in contemporary American film is an innovative analysis of images of science and technology from popular films of the 1980s and 1990s. It argues that films as diverse as the science fiction film Jurassic Park, the melodrama Lorenzo's Oil and the Gremlin comic fantasies contribute to popular understandings of science and technology. Introducing ideas from technoscience studies, Aylish Wood shows that films such as Twelve monkeys, Lawnmower man and Strange days explore the complex social, cultural and economic intersections that lead to the generation of scientific knowledge, and the different ways that such knowledge emerges within the world. Moving beyond the idea that technoscience is simply either good or bad, this study examines the often ambiguous relationship between humans and technoscience, through an analysis of individual films including Edward Scissorhands, Android and GATTACA. (publisher notes) . Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
