Jason Farman is an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park in the Department of American Studies and a Distinguished Faculty Fellow in the Digital Cultures and Creativity Program. He received his Ph.D. in Performance Studies and Digital Media from the University of California, Los Angeles. Farman's research focuses on embodied space in the digital age, including studies of mobile media, mapping technologies, videogames, digital storytelling, social media, digital performance art, and surveillance.
"Working deftly at the intersection of poststructuralism and phenomenology, Jason Farman develops the concept of the 'sensory-inscribed' body to discuss embodiment through and within mobile interfaces.a Enlivened with personal anecdotes, his accessible and theoretically savvy writing provides essential guidance to the effects that mobile media are having on important contemporary issues, from ethical quandaries to geospatial reconfigurations of social relationships." --N. Katherine Hayles, Professor of Literature, Duke University "This luminously theorized, beautifully written book provides the first comprehensive account of locative mobile media. Jason Farman offers us a distinctive, philosophically attuned perspective on the great cultural technology of our time--tracing the new relations among bodies, space, and culture." --Gerard Goggin, Professor of Media and Communications, University of Sydney
