Sam Srauy and I are excited to announce our edited book project, "Digital
Affordances: Techno-Social and Critical Concerns." Please see below for the

*Call for Chapters*

"Digital Affordances: Techno-Social and Critical Concerns"

In the wake of numerous articles attempting to comprehend digital spaces
and their impact on social and cultural norms, the idea of “affordances”
has garnered much attention. But where do we go now? This edited book aims
to move beyond the observation of digital affordances’ existence to

creation, use, and impact of digital spaces.

Chapter topics may include, but are not limited to:

Digital affordances and...

--social network sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Tumblr,


--dating spaces (Match.com, Tinder, etc.)

--personalized music services (Spotify, Pandora, etc.)

--programming languages (critical code studies)


--video games

--mobile apps

--rating apps (Yelp, etc.)

--travel apps (Airbnb, Homeaway, Tripadvisor, etc.)

--wearables (Apple watch, Oculus Rift, Fitbit, etc.)

--sharing/gig economy apps (Uber, Lyft, etc.)
