Simone Browne, Dark Matters: On the Surveillance of Blackness
Browne shows how racial ideologies and the long history of policing black bodies under transatlantic slavery structure contemporary surveillance technologies and practices. Analyzing a wide array of archival and contemporary texts, she demonstrates how surveillance reifies boundaries, borders, and bodies around racial lines.
Rachel E. Dubrofsky and Shoshana Amielle Magnet, Feminist Surveillance Studies
A field-defining collection that places gender, race, class, and sexuality at the center of surveillance studies. Concerned with exposing the ways in which surveillance is tied to discrimination, the contributors investigate what constitutes surveillance, who is scrutinized, why, and at what cost.
Nicole Starosielski, The Undersea Network
This book examines undersea communication cable network, bringing it to the surface of media scholarship and making visible the “wireless” network’s materiality. Starosielski argues that the network is inextricably linked to historical and political factors and that it is precarious, rural, aquatic, territorially entrench and semi-centralized.
Victoria Pitts-Taylor, The Brain′s Body: Neuroscience and Corporeal Politics
Michel Chion, Sound: An Acoulogical Treatise
Appearing here in English for the first time, Michel Chion’s study addresses the philosophical questions that inform our encounters with sound, stimulating our thinking about being open to new sounds and to explore the links between language, technology, culture, and hearing.
