Prof. Matthew Weber co-authored an article, “Mobile Technology Appropriation in a Distant Mirror: Baroquization, Creolization, and Cannibalism,” published in New Media & Society. This article reviews existing theoretical approaches to the study of technology appropriation and draws inspiration from three Latin American cultural traditions, baroquization, creolization, and cannibalism. It proposes a new theoretical framework that informs an in-depth study of the social, economic, and political impacts of technology appropriation.
