Call for Reviews, Technoculture

Hi, I am Lillie Connor-Flores, a second year masters student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I am the current reviews and critical web editor of Technoculture.

Technoculture is an online, peer-reviewed journal focusing on the way technology impacts society. We are seeking reviews on the following texts for our sixth volume, "It's Magic!" focusing on the tropes that associate technology with magic and vice versa.

The texts are:

The Imaginary App, Paul Miller and Svitlana Matviyenko

Science in Wonderland: The Scientific Fairy Tales of Victorian Britain, Melanie Keene

Illusions in Motion: Media Archaeology of the Moving Panorama and Related Spectacles, Erkki Huhtamo

The Magic World of Orson Welles, James Naremore

Dangerous Games: What the Moral Panic over Role-Playing Gamess Says about Role-Play, Religion, and Imagined Worlds, Joseph P. Laycock

Wizards, Aliens, and Starships: Physics and Math in Fantasy and Science Fiction, Charles L. Adler

Book reviews should be 1000-1500 words. Technoculture is primarily seeking reviews from non-tenure track professors and graduate students. Essays from tenured professors are, however, welcomed. Non-tenure track faculty and graduate students should submit full-length articles to the editor, Dr. Keith Dorwick, at kdorwick at tcjournal dot org.
