Utopias (Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art)

Utopian strategies in contemporary art seen in the context of the histories of utopian thinking and avant-garde art.

Throughout its diverse manifestations, the utopian entails two related but contradictory elements: the aspiration to a better world, and the acknowledgement that its form may only ever live in our imaginations. Furthermore, we are as haunted by the failures of utopian enterprise as we are inspired by the desire to repair the failed and build the new. Contemporary art reflects this general ambivalence. The utopian impulse informs politically activist and relational art, practices that fuse elements of art, design, and architecture, and collaborative projects aspiring to progressive social or political change. Two other tendencies have emerged in recent art: a looking backward to investigate the utopian elements of previous eras, and the imaginative modeling of alternative worlds as intimations of possibility. This anthology contextualizes these utopian currents in relation to political thought, viewing the utopian as a key term in the artistic lineage of modernity. It illuminates how the exploration of utopian themes in art today contributes to our understanding of contemporary cultures, and the possibilities for shaping their futures.

Power Lines: Electricity in American Life and Letters, 1882–1952 (Inside Technology)

How electricity became a metaphor for modernity in the United States, inspiring authors from Mark Twain to Ralph Ellison.

At the turn of the twentieth century, electricity emerged as a metaphor for modernity. Writers from Mark Twain to Ralph Ellison grappled with the idea of electricity as both life force (illumination) and death spark (electrocution). The idea that electrification created exclusively modern experiences took hold of Americans' imaginations, whether they welcomed or feared its adoption. In Power Lines, Jennifer Lieberman examines the apparently incompatible notions of electricity that coexisted in the American imagination, tracinghow electricity became a common (though multifarious) symbol for modern life.

Lieberman examines a series of moments of technical change when electricity accrued new social meanings, plotting both power lines and the power of narrative lines in American life and literature. While discussing the social construction of electrical systems,she offers a new interpretation of Twain's use of electricity as an organizing metaphor in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, describes the rhetoric surrounding the invention of electric execution, analyzes Charlotte Perkins Gilman's call for human connection in her utopian writing and in her little-known Human Work, considers the theme of electrical interconnection in Jack London's work, and shows how Ralph Ellison and Louis Mumford continued the literary tradition of electrical metaphor.

Electrical power was a distinctive concept in American literary, cultural, and technological histories. For this reason, narratives about electricity were particularly evocative. Bridging the realistic and the romantic, the historical and the fantastic, these stories guide us to ask new questions about our enduring fascination with electricity and all it came to represent.

The Gameful World: Approaches, Issues, Applications (The MIT Press)

What if every part of our everyday life was turned into a game? The implications of “gamification.”

What if our whole life were turned into a game? What sounds like the premise of a science fiction novel is today becoming reality as “gamification.” As more and more organizations, practices, products, and services are infused with elements from games and play to make them more engaging, we are witnessing a veritable ludification of culture.

Yet while some celebrate gamification as a possible answer to mankind's toughest challenges and others condemn it as a marketing ruse, the question remains: what are the ramifications of this “gameful world”? Can game design energize society and individuals, or will algorithmic
incentive systems become our new robot overlords?

In this book, more than fifty luminaries from academia and industry examine the key challenges of gamification and the ludification of culture―including Ian Bogost, John M. Carroll, Bernie DeKoven, Bill Gaver, Jane McGonigal, Frank Lantz, Jesse Schell, Kevin Slavin, McKenzie Wark, and Eric Zimmerman. They outline major disciplinary approaches, including rhetorics, economics, psychology, and aesthetics; tackle issues like exploitation or privacy; and survey main application domains such as health, education, design, sustainability, or social media.

Echographies of Television: Filmed Interviews
In this important new book, Jacques Derrida talks with BernardStiegler about the effect of teletechnologies on our philosophicaland political moment. Improvising before a camera, the twophilosophers are confronted by the very technologies they discussand so are forced to address all the more directly the urgentquestions that they raise. What does it mean to speak of thepresent in a situation of "live" recording? How can we respond,responsibly, to a question when we know that the so-called"natural" conditions of expression, discussion, reflection, anddeliberation have been breached?


As Derrida and Stiegler discuss the role of teletechnologies inmodern society, the political implications of Derrida's thoughtbecome apparent. Drawing on recent events in Europe, Derrida andStiegler explore the impact of television and the internet on ourunderstanding of the state, its borders and citizenship. Theirdiscussion examines the relationship between the juridical and thetechnical, and it shows how new technologies for manipulating andtransmitting images have influenced our notions of democracy,history and the body. The book opens with a shorter interview withDerrida on the news media, and closes with a provocative essay byStiegler on the epistemology of digital photography.


In Echographies of Television, Derrida and Stiegler open upquestions that are of key social and political importance. Theirbook will be of great interest to all those already familiar withDerrida's work, as well as to students and scholars of philosophy,literature, sociology and media studies.

Edward VI (Yale English Monarchs) (The English Monarchs Series)
Edward VI was the son of Henry VIII and his second wife, Jane Seymour. He ruled for only six years (1547-1553) and died at the age of sixteen. But these were years of fundamental importance in the history of the English state, and in particular of the English church. This new biography reveals for the first time that, despite his youth, Edward had a significant personal impact. Jennifer Loach draws a fresh portrait of the boy king as a highly precocious, well educated, intellectually confident, and remarkably decisive youth, with clear views on the future of the English church. Loach also offers a new understanding of Edward’s health, arguing that the cause of his death was a severe infection of the lungs rather than tuberculosis, the commonly accepted diagnosis. The author views Edward not as a sickly child but as a healthy and vigorous boy, devoted to hunting and tournaments like any young aristocrat of the day.
This book tells the story of the monarch and of his time. It supplies the dramatic context in which the short reign of Edward VI was played out―the momentous religious changes, factional fights, and popular risings. And it offers vivid details on Edward’s increasing absorption in politics, his consciousness of his role as supreme head of the English church, his determination to lay the foundation for a Protestant regime, and how his failure in this ambition brought England to the brink of civil war.
