Refiguring the net generation : beyond users
Leong, Susan & Tay, Elaine (2006) Refiguring the net generation : beyond users. In Association of Internet Researchers 2006 : Internet Convergences, 27-30 September, 2006, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. (Unpublished)
In place of, or alongside paradigms such as "the net generation", we suggest that the full implications of the Internet might be productively analysed using a broader framework, that of social imaginaries. First used by Cornelius Castoriadis and more recently by Charles Taylor, the social imaginary, as applied here, is the loosely co-ordinated body of significations that enable our social acts and practices by making sense of them.
