La géographie d’internet

Back to summary

The Internet is often considered to be something intangible. Yet it is rooted in a physical infrastructure that we all use every day. Why is its materiality so often forgotten? Why is it perceived as detached from the geographical world?
This thesis analyses how the Internet has been represented visually and textually over the course of its evolution. Through six case studies, chosen for their historical importance or the importance of their dissemination, Chloé Michel observes how these representations have influenced our perception of the Internet as a geographically anchored space.
