Promotional Information

Over the last decade, Anna Munster has emerged as a leading voice in the critical and scholarly discussion of networks. This book will have broad appeal to scholars working in the digital humanities, social science, media and communications, and behavioral studies involving neurology, affect, and perception. -- Darren Tofts, Professor of Media and Communications, Swinburne University of Technology A powerful, compelling, and evocative countergradient against the invisible force field of network topologies, An Aesthesia of Networks disrupts the numbness of contemporary digital perception by exploring the 'patchiness of the network field' -- its recursive loops, viral refrains, and complex conjunctions. Writing at the futuristic edge of art and technology, Anna Munster asks an insistent and critically important question, namely how to think in a more complicated, subtle, and relational way in a digital universe where bodies with minds of code and 'nerves of data' circulate in data networks that are viral, contagious, and sometimes as sublime as they are pervasive. -- Arthur Kroker, Canada Research Chair in Technology, Culture and Theory, University of Victoria In this engaging and well-researched book, Anna Munster casts light on the emergence of various types of networks in the current media landscape. Taking seriously the reality of relations that unfold in and via YouTube videos, database art, and Google, she allows us to sense the ongoing pulsating dynamic in which various networking processes come together -- as well as apart. -- Joanna Zylinska, Professor of New Media and Communications, Goldsmiths, University of London
