About this book

Over the past two decades in the United States, a profound reorientation of human attention has taken shape. This book addresses the recent cultural anxiety about attention as a way of negotiating a crisis of the self that is increasingly managed, mediated, and controlled by technologies.

About the authors

Kenneth Rogers is Assistant Professor of Media Studies at York University, Canada.

Reviews

"The Attention Complex certainly got my attention: it is a lively read rife with smart insights about the cultural logic of attention, as well as thoroughly convincing historicization of the 'invention' of ADHD." - Jasbir Puar, Associate Professor, Women's and Gender Studies, Rutgers University, USA, and author of Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times
