So for next week, first the three readings on books:
- Paul Duguid, "Material matters: The past and futurology of the book," in Geoffrey Nunberg, ed., The Future of the Book (1996).
- John Seely Brown and Paul Duguid, The Social Life of Information (2000) chapter 7, "Reading the background."
- David Finkelstein and Alistair McCleery, An Introduction to Book History (2005) chapter 7, "The future of the book."
And then the two readings on media and technology:
- Leah A. Lievrouw, "New media design and development: Diffusion of innovations vs. social shaping of technology," in Leah A. Lievrouw and Sonia Livingstone, eds., Handbook of New Media (2006).
- Debra Benita Shaw, Technoculture: The Key Concepts (2008), chapter 1, "Introduction: Technology and social realities."
Anyone wishing to dive deeper can take a look at the articles Mei found in her literature search yesterday (but read the Lievrouw and Shaw articles first for some background context):
- Little, B. (1992). Explicit and implicit meanings in material culture and print culture. Historical Archaeology, 26(3), 85-94.
- Deuze, M. (2006). Participation, remediation, bricolage: Considering principal components of a digital culture. Information Society, 22(2), 63-75.
- Srinivasan, R. (2012). Re-thinking the cultural codes of new media: The question concerning ontology. New Media & Society, 0(0), 1-21.
- Mussell, J. (2012). The passing of print. Media History, 18(1), 77-92.
