Publisher Description

Through examining where American Culture, broadly speaking, is produced and consumed as well as how it has been captured by narratives to enhance power structures that drive polarization, this book argues for the merits of a user-owned cultural network and how it might be created. Developing such a network at the intersection of the digital and physical would take attention away from digital platforms that drive polarization and create a route by which users of digital networks profit directly from owning those networks rather than being exploited by those networks. It would support a new space for cultural work for those who have more free time due to automation while also creating a more robust exchange between various types of cultural producers and consumers directly around cultural elements rather than around polarizing topics. The result will lead to a space, conversation, and set of cultural objects and experiences that are more focused on the physical, human, and spiritual challenges facing the country rather than on dwelling in digital spaces that have increasingly become echo chambers.
