Swiss book on New Media from MIT Press

New Media Poetics

A new edition of New Media Poetics: Contexts, Technotexts, and Theories, co-edited by Professor Thomas Swiss, (Curriculum and Instruction, Culture and Teaching), has just been published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Press. By adding new media poetry to the study of hypertext narrative, interactive fiction, computer games, and other digital art forms,New Media Poetics extends our understanding of the computer as an expressive medium, showcases works that are visually arresting, aurally charged, and dynamic, and traces the lineage of new media poetry through print and sound poetics, procedural writing, gestural abstraction and conceptual art, and activist communities formed by emergent poetics.
