Lecture 9:Feminism,Narrative &Web 2.0: Andy P and Rachael Folds

Braidotti gives the introduction to Postmoderninty by discussing the change to the urban space and states that these changes have caused the demise of urban civil society.She discusses Post Modernity as a push towards "Third Worldifcation" to the detriment and exploitation of poorer societies.
She also apportions blame to this demise to the popularity of technology and culture and suggests that all of humanity now looks through a collective technical one vision where compliance is assumed and promotes nostalgia to a so called dream of urban civil society.

Section One
Braidotti describes various modern icons as simulators and suggests that our icons have not moved forward and therefore our views of what constitutes an icon.
