About this book
This book argues for hybridity of Western and African cultures within cybercultural/subcultural forms of communication. It demonstrates that when both Western and African cultures merge together through new forms of digital technology, marginalized populations in Africa are able to embrace communication, aiding in the socio-cultural and political development of the continent. The book also engages Electronic Colonization Theory in order to demonstrate how developing areas such as Africa experience a new form of imperialistic subjugation because of electronic and digital communication.
