Die sogenannte ,Techno-Szene' im weiteren Sinne umfasst europaweit scht zungsweise noch immer mehr als zehn Millionen Jugendliche, die regelmig an einschlgigen Tanz-Veranstaltungen teilnehmen - und weitere ca. zehn Millionen, die dies gelegentlich tun bzw. die zumindest auch fter Elektro nische Tanz-Musik hren. Obwohl infolgedessen sozusagen jedermann ganz alltglich Umgang mit Anhngern der Musik bzw. des Lebensstils ,Techno' haben drfte, und obwohl - oder vielleicht auch gerade weil - das Phnomen ,Techno' nach wie vor immer wieder die Aufmerksamkeit der Massenmedien erregt, ist das ,durchschnittliche' Wissen ber die Techno-,Kultur' nachwie vor eher drftig und vorurteilsbeladen: Viele Zeitgenossen, auch sozial wissenschaftlich informierte (oder gar professionalisierte) assoziieren mit dem Begriff ,Techno' lediglich ohrenbetubenden Lrm, nichtendenwollende Partys, exzessiven Drogenkonsum und kommerziell interessierte Verdum mung junger Menschen. Demgegenber hat die in den zurckliegenden fnf Jahren auch im deutsch sprachigen Raum stark intensivierte und personell verbreiterte sozialwissen schaftliehe Techno-Forschung auf der Basis vielfltiger empirischer Untersu chungen einen betrchtlichen Bestand an systematisierenden Beschreibungen, analytischen Rekonstruktionen und auch theoretischen Deutungen dieses Ph nomens erzeugt. Anders als vor allem im angelschsischen Sprachraum wurden diese Forschungsertrge bislang aber nicht gebndelt, sondern lediglich weit verstreut in anderen thematischen Kontexten publiziert. Der vorliegende Band, bei dessen Erstellung uns Cornelia Mohr eine wertvolle Hilfe war, versammelt die aus den ,Erkundungen einer Jugendkultur' resultierenden Erkenntnisse mageblicher Techno-Forscherinnen und Techno-Forscher in der deutschen Soziologie und benachbarten Disziplinen - wie Musikwissenschaft, Theologie, Betriebswirtschaftslehre, Politikwissenschaft, Kommunikationswissenschaft und Kunstpdagogik.

What will the future look like? To judge from many speculative fiction films and books, from Blade Runner to Cloud Atlas , the future will be full of cities that resemble Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, and it will be populated mainly by cold, unfeeling citizens who act like robots. Techno-Orientalism investigates the phenomenon of imagining Asia and Asians in hypo- or hyper-technological terms in literary, cinematic, and new media representations, while critically examining the stereotype of Asians as both technologically advanced and intellectually primitive, in dire need of Western consciousness-raising.    The collection's fourteen original essays trace the discourse of techno-orientalism across a wide array of media, from radio serials to cyberpunk novels, from Sax Rohmer's Dr. Fu Manchu to Firefly .  Applying a variety of theoretical, historical, and interpretive approaches, the contributors consider techno-orientalism a truly global phenomenon. In part, they tackle the key question of how these stereotypes serve to both express and assuage Western anxieties about Asia's growing cultural influence and economic dominance. Yet the book also examines artists who have appropriated techno-orientalist tropes in order to critique racist and imperialist attitudes.    Techno-Orientalism is the first collection to define and critically analyze a phenomenon that pervades both science fiction and real-world news coverage of Asia. With essays on subjects ranging from wartime rhetoric of race and technology to science fiction by contemporary Asian American writers to the cultural implications of Korean gamers, this volume offers innovative perspectives and broadens conventional discussions in Asian American Cultural studies.

Guillermo Gmez-Pea has spent many years developing his unique style of performance-activism; his theatricalizations of postcolonial theory. In Ethno-Techno: Writings on Performance, Activism and Pedagogy, he pushes the boundaries still further, exploring what's left for artists to do in a post-9/11 repressive culture of what he calls 'the mainstream bizarre'. Over forty-five photos document his artistic experiments and the text not only explores and confronts his political and philosophical parameters; it offers groundbreaking insights into his, and his company's, methods of production, development and teaching. The result is an extraordinary and inspiring glimpse into the life and work of one of the most daring, innovative and challenging performance artists of our age.

Techno-Resiliency in Education
This book formulates a greater understanding of how to enable a capacity for building social professional practice related to technology-enriched teaching and learning (TETL) specific, but not limited to, educational settings. This book comes at a time when many in education are struggling to provide a technology enriched learning experience for students who are entering classrooms with high expectations for such an experience. The focus on the protective factors and identified resilient professional practices, instead of on well documented and commonly cited risk factors and barriers that impede the effective integration of TETL, represents a distinguishing feature of this work. By attempting to better understand and document how two schools that were classified as resilient in their use of technology have been able to overcome risk factors (e.g., budgetary constraints, a lack of resources, a lack of training, technological support issues), this book will offer the unique concept of techno-resiliency and some ofits deeper insights and strategies.
