Dear all,

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.
