Dear CITASA,

I'd like to invite interested parties to submit to us their book ideas for our new series, Materializing the Digital.

Materializing the Digital seeks to interrogate the infrastructures, relationships and imaginaries of digital technologies through situated, empirical analyses of the production, circulation and use of digital devices and systems.

Series Editors: Hannah Knox, University College London and Adam Fish, Lancaster University

Positioned at the intersection of media studies, STS, anthropology and sociology, the series will provide original, critical and theoretically innovative understandings of the implications of digital technologies for contemporary social life. Our intention is that this series will provide a solid ground from which to engage and critique the persistence of utopian, functionalist and dystopic visions of technological futures.

We are particularly looking for projects that:

attend to the specific processes by which digital technologies are produced, circulated and used;
analyze the nature of the infrastructures that digital systems rely on, and the unforeseen material consequences and effects of digital technologies (e.g. e-waste);
draw attention to materiality is to broaden the usual focus of ‘media’ (i.e. text and representation) to include issues like signal, transmission and storage;
interrogate the interplay between material processes and social dynamics;
present theoretically informed ethnographic monographs that detail the social, material and cultural relationships that structure the production and circulation of digital media.
