Jacob Johanssen’s ‘Psychoanalysis and Digital Culture’ featured on New Books Network Podcast
Jacob Johanssen’s ‘Psychoanalysis and Digital Culture’ has been featured on the New Books Network Podcast with Dave O’Brien. In the podcast Johanssen discusses his latest work which draws on the work of Freud and Anzieu to explore both traditional and new forms of media. His book uses research projects on the Embarrassing Bodies television show, and on digital labour, to show how psychoanalysis can inform research methods and explain how people engage with TV, use Twitter, and present themselves online. Moreover, the book grapples with the rise of big data, offering new perspectives on content providers such as Netflix. Packed with rich analysis and a wealth of examples, the book will be essential reading across cultural and media studies.
