Hi AoIR!

Courtesy of Culture Digitally, I've just open-accessed the audio 
lectures for the first unit of my undergraduate "Media, Technology & 
Culture" course at UMass. They're formatted as podcasts and take on the 
obligatory question for most such courses, "How new are 'new media?'" 
They feature guest appearances from some great historians and 
sociologists and I hope some of you may find them useful as assigned 
"readings" for your own classes.


If you listen and/or make use of them I hope you'll also take the time 
to provide feedback, as a big motivation on my part for posting these is 
to make them better and to involve more voices in the conversations that 
happen in my own classroom.

Many Thanks,

Josh Braun, Ph.D.
