We're delighted to announce the first book in Open Humanities Press'
new Technographies series, which is edited by Steven Connor, James
Purdon and David Trotter.
Writing, Medium, Machine: Modern Technographies, edited by Sean Pryor
and David Trotter, is a collection of thirteen essays by leading
scholars which explores the mutual determination of forms of writing
and forms of technology in modern literature. The essays unfold, from
a variety of historical and theoretical perspectives, the proposition
that literature is not less but more mechanical than other forms of
writing: a transfigurative ideal machine.
Contributors: Ruth Abbott, John Attridge, Kasia Boddy, Mark Byron,
Beci Carver, Steven Connor, Esther Leslie, Robbie Moore, Julian
Murphet, James Purdon, Sean Pryor, Paul Sheehan, Kristen Treen.
