Editorial Reviews

Review

"Working deftly at the intersection of poststructuralism and phenomenology, Jason Farman develops the concept of the ‘sensory-inscribed’ body to discuss embodiment through and within mobile interfaces. Enlivened with personal anecdotes, his accessible and theoretically savvy writing provides essential guidance to the effects that mobile media are having on important contemporary issues, from ethical quandaries to geospatial reconfigurations of social relationships." ―N. Katherine Hayles, Professor of Literature, Duke University

"This luminously theorized, beautifully written book provides the first comprehensive account of locative mobile media. Jason Farman offers us a distinctive, philosophically attuned perspective on the great cultural technology of our time―tracing the new relations among bodies, space, and culture." ―Gerard Goggin, Professor of Media and Communications, University of Sydney

"Farman's Mobile Interface Theory is the first [book] that focuses completely on theory for mobile media, and, in doing so, provides an excellent foundation for all of us interested in this area of media scholarship." ―Dene Grigar, Washington State University Vancouver, in Leonardo Reviews

"Farman’s text represents an ambitiously thoughtful and well-written attempt to understand locative media in terms of embodied experience." ―Dan Hassoun, University of Minnesota, in The International Journal of Communication 

WINNER OF THE 2012 ASSOCIATION OF INTERNET RESEARCHERS BOOK AWARD: "[Mobile Interface Theory] has the potential to inform new scholarship, re-set directions, and remind us that, now, the Internet is not somewhere else, but right here, in our pockets, our minds, our places." ―AoIR Book Award Committee

"Mobile Interfaces in Public Spaces...would work...well as a foundational text in a course on mobile theories...[and] would likely be of interest to those seeking a richer theoretical understanding of how we experience space and time in an increasingly networked world." - Ryan S. Eanes, University of Oregon, USA
