LSE Review of Books

blogging, book review

LSE Review of Books publishes daily reviews of academic books across the social sciences. The platform is part of wider efforts to facilitate knowledge sharing between experts within and outside of the academy, and to encourage a wider public engagement with the social sciences. In a fast changing landscape of academic communication, this model not only reduces the speed at which social science books are reviewed, but also makes reviews accessible outside of the usual academic pay walls. Have a look at the book reviews I’ve written for the LSE Review of Books:

Of Remixology review cover

I reviewed David J. Gunkel’s brilliant “Of Remixology: Ethics and Aesthetics after Remix”, published in 2016 at MIT Press. As you can tell from my review, reading this book and writing about it was a pleasure.

Migration New Media review cover

I reviewed “Migration and New Media: Transnational Families and Polymedia” by Mirca Madianou and Daniel Miller. I enjoyed reading and reviewing this book, as its subject matter on the nexus between technology and society is very close to my heart (and work), which made it all the more exciting to see it listed among the top five most-read reviews of sociology and anthropology books back in 2013.

Becoming of Bodies review cover

And lastly, I wrote a review of “The Becoming of Bodies: Girls, Images, Experience” by Rebecca Coleman. It was listed on the blog’s roundup of must-reads for women’s day 2013 and made the list of most-read gender studies book reviews at the time.
