        Subject: Information & Culture seeking book reviews

Dear Digital Humanists,

I hope that everyone is doing well, and I apologize for any inbox-clogging
that you may experience due to my cross-posting with a few other listservs.

I’m the Senior Book Reviews Editor for Information & Culture 
( and I’m looking to line up a few reviews.
There have been some excellent new books released in the past few months
and I don’t want to let them slip by un-reviewed!

Reviews are generally under 1,000 words and directed at a wide audience of
media, library, information, and communication scholars. You can also read
our full book review guidelines at You
can also see some recent reviews (open access) at

Below, I’m including a list of titles that I would like to line up:

A Primer for Teaching Digital History: Ten Design Principles, by Jennifer
Guiliano (Duke UP, May 2022,

“Circulation and Control: Artistic Culture and Intellectual Property in the
Nineteenth Century,” by Marie-Stéphanie Delamaire and Will Slauter (eds)
(Open Book Publishers,

“Cut/Copy/Paste: Fragments from the History of Bookwork,” by Whitney
Trettien (U Minnesota Press,

“Data Lives: How Data Are Made and Shape Our World,” by Rob Kitchin
(Bristol UP

“Digital Black Feminism” by Catherine Knight Steele (NYU Press,

“Profiles in Resilience: Books for Children and Teens That Center the Lived
Experience of Generational Poverty,” by Christina H. Dorr (ALA Editions,

"When the Medium Was the Mission: The Atlantic Telegraph and the Religious
Origins of Network Culture," by Jenna Supp-Montgomerie (NYU Press,

Please feel free to reach out with your own suggestions as well, if you
would like to propose reviewing a book that’s been published within the
last 12 months. We also maintain a list of interested reviewers, so please
let me know if you would like to be added to that list.

If you are interested in any of the above, please send an email to I hope that you won’t hesitate to get in touch
if you have any further questions.
