“The cultural authority of the codex form of the book appears to be in a process of displacement ensuing from the rise of on-line digital media. The traditional material structures of the book – its physical forms and its institutional forms of production, circulation, and preservation – are often seen as being subject to dematerialisation; evaporating in the transitory appearances of the digital screen and in the proliferation of new systems of production. However, this issue of New Formations makes the case that the present historical juncture should be understood as a mixed media milieu, in which traditional and digital forms of writing and publishing coalesce and conflict in a complex array of textual materialities.
Such materialities of text are at once sites of political and aesthetic experimentation, and of intense capitalization, intersecting features which are approached in the articles collected here through a broad range of theoretical and empirical themes: diagrammatic writing; the material reading formations of a best-seller novel; grey literature in the institutions of cultural studies; Black Twitter; the politics of Open Access and the artists’ book; digital humanities and its political problematics; the bibliopolitics of the passport; and the political and aesthetic forms of independent publishing.”

Amodern is a peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journal devoted to the study of media, culture, and poetics.
The collective aim of contributions to this issue is “to imagine, in a scholarly or para-scholarly fashion, what we could explore, as writers and artists, if we took seriously the potential poetics of illegibility as a weird sub-category of the legible.”
With contributions by Nick Thurston, Johanna Drucker, Michael Cronin, John Mowitt, Garrett Stewart, Diana Hamilton, Kate Briggs, Matt Applegate, Stephen Voyce, and Luke Skrebowski.

“Experimental reflections on listening / reading practices.
Founded in 2013, Reductive Journal explores diverse approaches to text-sound compositions, examining how text and sound are related, defined and inter-permeated in various levels of experiences: listening, reading, perceiving, receiving and performing.
Each Journal is a collaboration between the editors, designers and contributing artists.”
