Course Theoretical Background

As I detailed in the opening lecture, a new book by Michael Gardiner, an assistant professor in the faculty of letters at Chiba University, Japan, has just been published, which is brings main themes from our course together, with an up-to-date focus. I have ordered two copies of From Trocchi to Trainspotting: Scottish Critical Theory Since 1960 from the Library to be placed on course Reserve.

I will be using the book as the background to lecture, so it is a support text rather than a critical necessity for your reading. However, the idea behind Gardiner's bok can be found condensed in an earlier article of his,
"Endless Enlightenment: Eye-Operated Technology and the Political Economy of Vision,"
which I have now linked in the On-Line Articles; Course Package post.
