Title
Communication technologies and the politics of postmodern information science

Abstract
Addresses the identity politics of modern communication and information technologies. These technologies are not mere hardware, causally related to society through their effects on individual subjects. They embody social relations of domination and dependence, especially in their construction of specific forms of human subjectivity. Database constructed identites are postmodern in character: unstable, shifting and subject to the control of information processing software. The political implications of these identity construction systems are explored. The post-marxist political debate about the postmodern character of the subjects who participate in the social relations configured by the new communication and information technologies presents the most urgent issues for the possibilities of intellectual activism in the service of a democratic politics of information. Makes 6 recommendations for political work in information science
