A new faculty book on Necromedia


necromedia_cover_umn Congratulations to UWaterloo English professor, Marcel O’Gorman, on the publication of his book, Necromedia, by University of Minnesota Press. See below for the press release and a description of what necromedia is: An unusual answer to a common question: Why does technology play such a powerful role in our culture?  In Necromedia, media activist Marcel O’Gorman takes aim at “the collusion of death and technology,” mixing philosophical speculation with artistic creation, personal memoir, and existential dread to document a struggle to embrace the technical essence of human being without permitting technology worshippers to have the last word on what it means to be human.
