BIO

Mark Andrejevic is a media scholar who writes about surveillance, new media, and popular culture. In broad terms, he is interested in the ways in which forms of surveillance and monitoring enabled by the development of new media technologies impact the realms of economics, politics, and culture. His first book, Reality TV: The Work of Being Watched (2003), explores the way in which this popular programming genre equates participation with willing submission to comprehensive monitoring. His second book, iSpy: Surveillance and Power in the Interactive Era (2007), considers the role of surveillance in the era of networked digital technology and explores the consequences for politics, policing, popular culture, and commerce. His most recent book, Infoglut: How Too Much Information is Changing the Way We Think and Know (2013), explores the connections between wide-ranging sense-making strategies for an era of information overload and "big data," and the new forms of control they enable.
