Sie sind schön, sie haben Geld, sie sind begabt: Emanuela, Simon, Franny, Jess. Mit zielstrebiger Selbstverständlichkeit nehmen sie jede Hürde ihres Studiums in Oxford und sie sind die Freunde von Marc, der lässiger ist als alle anderen, entwaffnend charmant, offenkundig promisk und geradezu obszön reich. James würde alles dafür geben dazuzugehören. Als Jess sich in ihn verliebt, geht dieser Wunsch in Erfüllung, mehr noch, Marc bittet sie alle, bei ihm einzuziehen. Keiner widersteht diesem Angebot und bald belebt eine exklusive WG den alten Herrensitz, mit rauschenden Partys und wechselnden Liebschaften. Ohne es selbst zu merken, verstrickt sich James in eine Abhängigkeit von Marc, aus der er sich, auch als die Gemeinschaft auseinandergeht und trotz seiner Liebe zu Jess, kaum befreien kann. Mit scharfem Blick und scharfer Zunge porträtiert Naomi Alderman eine ganz besondere Facette der geschlossenen Gesellschaft einer Eliteuni versität und lotet dabei die Kräfteverhältnisse von Ehrgeiz und Einsamkeit aus, von Liebe und Macht.

Technologies of the Gothic in Literature and Culture

Author: Justin D. Edwards
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781317632856
Release Date: 2015-02-11
Genre: Literary Criticism

This volume, a collection with contributions from some of the major scholars of the Gothic in literature and culture, reflects on how recent Gothic studies have foregrounded a plethora of technologies associated with Gothic literary and cultural production. The engaging essays look into the links between technologies and the proliferation of the Gothic seen in an excess of Gothic texts and tropes: Frankensteinesque experiments, the manufacture of synthetic (true?) blood, Moreauesque hybrids, the power of the Borg, Dr Jekyll’s chemical experimentations, the machinery of Steampunk, or the corporeal modifications of Edward Scissorhands. Further, they explore how techno-science has contributed to the proliferation of the Gothic: Gothic in social media, digital technologies, the on-line gaming and virtual Goth/ic communities, the special effects of Gothic-horror cinema. Contributors address how Gothic technologies have, in a general sense, produced and perpetuated ideologies and influenced the politics of cultural practice, asking significant questions: How has the technology of the Gothic contributed to the writing of self and other? How have Gothic technologies been gendered, sexualized, encrypted, coded or de-coded? How has the Gothic manifested itself in new technologies across diverse geographical locations? This volume explores how Gothic technologies textualize identities and construct communities within a complex network of power relations in local, national, transnational, and global contexts. It will be of interest to scholars of the literary Gothic, extending beyond to include fascinating interventions into the areas of cultural studies, popular culture, science fiction, film, and TV.

Composed of 100 bite-sized entries of 400 to 600 words each, Netymology weaves together stories, etymologies and analyses around digital culture's transformation, and creation, of words.

There's also discussion of the trends behind digital words, and of the ways language itself is being shaped by new forces - and revelations about how these forces are, in turn, reshaping us.
