A Must Read for Communication Technology Scholars 20 Feb. 2014
By Gina Neff - Published on
Format: Paperback
Media Technologies brings together emerging and established scholars working at the intersection of digital media and science and technology studies. The result is a volume that will shape the direction of both fields for years to come. By including insightful overview essays for each section, the editors have initiated a set of scholarly conversations about the state of current scholarship and identified the directions for future research. This is one book that should be on the shelf of every communication technology scholar.

Academic paradigm questioned 28 Oct. 2014
By Pedro Demo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book contains many futurist texts questioning some academic uses and abuses. Materiality is groundbreaking reference, but, of course, not in deterministic trope. We need other “texts”, not linear, formalist, sequential, but multimodal, fluid as the reality. Great perspective, although we don’t have at the moment assured solutions. Academy must rethink itself completely. As Foucault used to say in “Discourse’s Order” – order comes from discourse, not from reality.
