Tara Brabazon (Ed.), Chandos Publishing, 2008, Chandos Internet Series. The editor of this book describes the Popular Culture Collective initiative, of which she is director, as a “global community of researchers, writers, film makers, musicians and media activists”. The first, Scanning the Silences, examines social inequities surrounding literacy in and outside the digital world, barriers to digital access for our older population, pedagogic reductionism in online learning and international student preferences for traditional physical learning environments. [...]students are continually being urged to critically analyse and challenge ideas in exactly these areas, as more and more computing and information related courses require students to study modules about ethical, social and legal issues surrounding digitisation.
