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 free to compose, rewrite, edit, annotate, translate, tag, add to, remix, reformat, reinvent and reuse any of the books in the series, or produce parallel versions of them - and what's more you are expressly invited and encouraged to do so. (We would appreciate it if you would tell us about it if you do so away from this site.)

 

The wiki you are currently reading has been set up to expressely facilitate such experimention. It provides you with read/write access to all the volumes in the Liquid Books series. (All you need to do is click on 'Log in' above the Sidebar on the right and request access.)  A full list of the volumes in the series is provided for you on the 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). 

 

Where appropriate, some of the most interesting results of such open writing and editing - as chosen by Culture Machine's editors and peer-reviewers on a case by case basis - will be 'frozen' and published by Open Humanities Press as new versions of volumes in the Liquid Books series in their own right. These volumes, in common with all of Open Humanities Press' books, will be run through the University of Michigan's Scholarly Publishing Office's suite of services and made freely available full text online, as HTML, and - again where appropriate - PDF as well. It is hoped that Print-on-Demand and e-pub book versions will be available in this way in the future, too.

 

 


Volume 1. 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 initially been put together 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. 

 


Volume 2. The Post-Corporate University

 

The second volume in the Culture Machine Liquid Books series is The Post-Corporate University, which is being openly written and edited by Davin Heckman.    

 


Volume 3. Technology and Cultural Form: A Liquid Theory Reader

 

The third volume in the Culture Machine Liquid Books series is Technology and Cultural Form: A Liquid Theory Reader, which is being openly written and edited by Joanna Zylinska and the students on the MA Digital Media at Goldsmiths, University of London.

 

 


Volume 4. Wyrd to the Wiki: Lacunae Toward Wiki Ontologies

 

Fore! Ecstatic allocentric linking and transduction. Wyrd to the Wiki: Lacunae Toward Wiki Ontologies is an Unindentifiable Digital Object calling on your attentions and intentions. Woven wyrds  leak wiki wisdom wantonly. Resonant multi-player composition for N players. Openly and collaborative written by Shareriff ( Trey Conner, University of South Florida) and mobius ( Richard Doyle, Penn State University), Wyrd to the wiki is an invocation and call to all.
