By Howard, K. Shannon
This book showcases youth and young adult characters from film and television who defy the stereotype of the digital native or unquestioning devotee to technology. Unplugged tools, or non-digital tools, do not necessitate a ban on technology or a refusal to acknowledge its afford...ances, but work instead to highlight the ability of fictional characters to move from high tech settings to low tech ones. By repurposing everyday materials, characters model the process of reusing and upcycling existing materials in innovative ways. In studying examples such as Pitch Perfect, Stranger Things, and Get Out, the book aims to make theories surrounding materiality apparent within popular culture.Read more
