Dear all,

apologies for cross-posting, but here's the info 
about a new book series, Recursions: Theories of 
Media, Materiality and Cultural Techniques, that 
has just been announced by Amsterdam University 


New Series Announcement

The new book series 
Theories of Media, Materiality, and Cultural 
Techniques provides a platform for cutting- edge 
research in the field of media culture studies 
with a particular focus on the cultural impact of 
media technology and the materialities of 
communication. The series aims to be an 
internationally significant and exciting opening 
into emerging ideas in media theory ranging from 
media materialism and hardware-oriented studies 
to ecology, the post-human, the study of cultural 
techniques, and recent contributions to media 

The series revolves around key themes:

The material underpinning of media theory
New advances in media archaeology and media philosophy
Studies in cultural techniques
These themes resonate with some of the most 
interesting debates in international media 
studies, where non-representational thought, the 
technicity of knowledge formations and new 
materialities expressed through biological and 
technological developments are changing the 
vocabularies of cultural theory. The series is 
also interested in the mediatic conditions of 
such theoretical ideas and developing them as 
media theory.

Forthcoming 2015
