We are excited to announce the release of three new digitalculturebooks titles.
Tactics of the Human: Experimental Technics in American Fiction – Laura Shackelford
Tactics of the Human: Experimental Technics in American Fiction examines the comparative perspective on digital cultures contemporary American fiction develops through the creative transposition of digital rhetorics and technological practices -such as the hyperlink, network, or recursive processing – into print or in translating a classic print narrative into a digital hypertext fiction.
Imagining the Global: Transnational Media and Popular Culture Beyond East and West – Fabienne Darling-Wolf
Based on a series of case studies of globally distributed media and their reception in different parts of the world, Imagining the Global reflects on what contemporary global culture can teach us about transnational cultural dynamics in the 21st century. It also explores how individuals’ consumption of global media shapes their imagination of both faraway places and of their own local lives. This book is part of the digitalculturebooks New Media World Series.
Internationalizing “International Communication” – Chin-Chuan Lee
Many lines of intellectual development are reckoning with the important dimensions of empathetic understanding and subjective consciousness. In Internationalizing “International Communication” Lee and others argue that we must reject both America-writ-large views of the world and self-defeating mirror images that reject anything American or western on the grounds of cultural incompatibility or even cultural superiority. This book is part of the digitalculturebooks New Media World Series.
