Please excuse my cross-posting. I am the Book Reviews Editor for
Information & Culture (https://www.infoculturejournal.org/). I’m writing
because we are currently looking for new book reviewers.

Reviews are generally around 1,000 words in length, written for a broad
academic audience.

If you’re interested, please email reviews at ischool.utexas.edu with your
area of expertise and any other relevant information. You are free to pitch
any book within the areas of information, media, and communication
(published within the last year), or to express interest in one of the
titles below. I look forward to working with you!

Here are some titles that we are currently looking to assign:

“The Affect Lab: The History and Limits of Measuring Emotion”
By Grant Bollmer

“Discriminating Data: Correlation, Neighborhoods, and the New Politics of
by Wendy Chun

“The Smart Mission: NASA's Lessons for Managing Knowledge, People, and

Technology” by Margaret Jack

another recent title, please contact us at reviews at ischool.utexas.edu.
