The many futures of the book

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article juxtaposes the idea of the book in the traditional academic context to the book's latest technological manifestation as e-reader that uses E-Ink technology, mimes the clarity of a printed book, and offers wireless connectivity. It considers the implications of connectivity for a new network readership, for the publishing industry, for the author-reader relationship, and for the very idea of authorship. The premise is that bound up with the changes that the object-book undergoes are our deeply held conceptions of subjectivity and agency.
