critical cyberculture studies

i've just received word that an anthology that adrienne massanari and i edited, titled critical cyberculture studies, will be available soonish from nyu press. it is exciting to see the book come to life (almost!) and it has been a terrific experience working closely with emily park and her team at nyu press.

i was psyched to learn that howard rheingold, one of my favorites in the field, supplied a soundbite for the back cover: "As studies of the Internet and cyberculture begin to mature, it is a particularly important time for critical studies - critical of the subject matter, and critical of the emerging field itself. The consciously interdisciplinary approach of Critical Cyberculture Studies, and the depth and breadth of the contributions, make this an important foundational work at the beginnings of a new field of studies. If only we had a critical study of communication when the Gutenberg revolution was beginning!" - Howard Rheingold, author of The Virtual Community and Smart Mobs

Sounds like a fabulous collection which may very well find pride of place on a number of Intro to Cyber/Culture type courses in the coming year! :)

The big question, of course, is who will review it for RCSS ...

thanks tama! it's a really interesting collection that approaches the field from many different perspectives. as for rccs review ... ooh, yikes, good question! is it ethical to have one's own book reviewed by one's own center? i don't think so.

great job. I think that instead of having it reviewed by your center, you should invite a roundtable review, with at least 4 scholars, where each one reviews and responds to the other reviews. i think it is perfectly fine to do that, as long as you take a hands off approach.
