DOING TEXT: MEDIA AFTER THE SUBJECT. Ed. by Pete Bennett and Julian McDougall. Auteur Publishing, Leighton Buzzard, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Columbia University Press, New York. 240 pp. with 10 ills. 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781911325024 In English.
Hardcover edition also available; see Worldwide 173917. Publisher's description: This collection re-imagines the study of English and media in a way that decentralizes the text (e.g. romantic poetry or film noir) or media formats/platforms (e.g. broadcast media/new media). Instead, the authors work across boundaries in meaningful thematic contexts that reflect the ways in which people engage with reading, watching, making, and listening in their textual lives. In so doing, this project recasts both subjects as combined in a more reflexive, critical space for the study of our everyday social and cultural interactions. Across the chapters, the authors present applicable learning and teaching strategies that weave together art works, films, social practices, creativity, 'viral' media, theater, TV, social media, videogames, and literature. The culmination of this range of strategies is a reclaimed 'blue skies' approach to progressive textual education, free from constraining shackles of outdated ideas about textual categories and value that have hitherto alienated generations of students and both English and media from themselves.
