Making Sense of the Information Age: Sociology and Cultural Studies

Frank Webster

Volume 1, 2005, Cultural Technology and Policy Journal


There has been a discernable shift away from interest in the Information Society towards concern with the character of 'cyberspace' and 'virtuality'. In key ways this reorientation reflects the rise of Cultural Studies and its impatience with sociology. This article explores aspects of the relations between these two subject areas and difficulties with coming to terms with contemporary change.

Key words: information age, cultural studies, sociology, cyberspace, virtuallity, information society.
