  • Ignacio Siles González Universidad de Costa Rica
Palabras clave: estudios sobre internet, comunicación mediada por computadora, cibercultura, nuevos medios, historia

Resumen

Este artículo explora el desarrollo de la investigación sobre internet (principalmente anglófona) entre 1990 y 2007. Para esto, se analizan los principales ejes temáticos de los estudios sobre tal medio a lo largo de casi dos décadas, y se presentan diversos debates que han definido su evolución como objeto de estudio. Se sugiere, a final de cuentas, que los estudios sobre internet constituyen un campo de conocimientos en proceso de construcción, con creciente legitimidad académica.
