Abstract or Description

Published as part of Minnesota’s ‘Forerunners’ series—a project designed to deliver ‘thought-in-process’ scholarship—this fascinating little book about the Internet discusses deep and learned theory in speculative style. Aaron Jaffe, whose previous work runs the gamut from a detailed monograph on modernism and celebrity to The Year’s Work in Lebowski Studies (and who co-curated an entire festival about the “Dude”), makes rare light (but dizzying) work of a subject often handled with heft and/or specialist smugness.
