Virtual Geographies: The New Worlds of Cyberspace.
Gunkel, David J.; Gunkel, Ann Hetzel
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v14 n2 p123-37 Jun 1997
Investigates the legacy, logic, and consequences of the appellation "the new world of cyberspace" that connects cyberspace to the Columbian voyages of discovery and the larger network of European expansionism. Engages in a critical investigation of the colonial logic implied by this seemingly innocent taxonomy, and examines its deployment in and significance for current research. (SR)
