new books

New books, accumulated over the last few months. Some purchased, and some just appeared in the mail (thank you!!) In no particular order.

Goggin & Hjorth, Mobile Technologies: From Telecommunications to Media. Routledge

Paul Virilio, The University of Disaster. Polity.

Campanella Bracken and Skalski (eds) Immersed in Media: Telepresence in Everyday Life. Routledge.

Solove, Understanding Privacy. Harvard.

Vivian, Public Forgetting. Penn State.

Papacharissi (ed), A Networked Self: Identity, Community, and Culture in Social Network Sites. Routledge.

Turner, Ordinary People in the Media.

Crow, Longford, & Sawchuk (eds), The Wireless Spectrum. University of Toronto Press.

Currently reading: Qui Xiaolong, Death of a Red Heroine, a mystery recommended by Jennifer (thanks!). Though I am also inching my way through both Against the Day (which is taking years, I realize, which is not necessarily the book's fault) and Vineland by Pynchon. Finished Inherent Vice, which was fun.
