Welcome to the Culture Machine Liquid Books series wiki!


Culture Machine Liquid Books is a series of experimental digital ‘books’ published under the conditions of both open editing and free content. As such, you are completely free to annotate, tag, edit, add to, remix, reformat, reversion, reuse, reinvent and republish any of the books in the series in any way you wish - and what's more you are strongly encouraged to do so.


The wiki you are currently reading has been set up to expressely facilitate such experimention. It provides you with complete read/write access to all the volumes in the Liquid Books series (a list of which is provided on the accompanying SideBar). You also have the ability to comment on, respond to, and debate with the text of these books, the authors, and other readers using the 'Add a comment' feature (see below). 


The most interesting results of such experimental read/write interaction  - as chosen by Culture Machine's editors and peer-reviewers - will be 'frozen' and published on the main Culture Machine site as new versions of volumes in the Liquid Books series in their own right. 


New Cultural Studies: The Liquid Theory Reader


The first volume in the Culture Machine Liquid Books series is New Cultural Studies: The Liquid Theory Reader. This has been edited by Gary Hall and Clare Birchall as a follow up to their 2006 woodware volume, New Cultural Studies: Adventures in Theory (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press). The first 'frozen liquid' version of this book - New Cultural Studies: The Liquid Theory Reader (Version 1.0) - appeared as part of the Culture Machine journal's 'Pirate Philosophy' issue in 2008.


Call for Contributions to the Culture Machine Liquid Books series


But you are not restricted merely to engaging with volumes in the series that have initially been produced by someone else. You can also produce and publish volumes of your own.


Culture Machine is currently seeking new and exciting contributions to the Liquid Books series. Suggestions for possible themes include (but are in no way restricted to):


The Book


The Environment



The Illegal Worker





The University




Anyone interested in contributing a volume to Culture Machine Liquid Books should contact the series editor Gary Hall - or just publish them using the Culture Machine Liquid Books wiki. We'll do the rest.
