In E-Crit, Marcel O'Gorman takes an ambitious and provocative look at how university scholarship, pedagogy, and curricula might be transformed to suit a digital culture. Arguing that universities were founded on the logic of print culture, O'Gorman sets out to reinvent the academic apparatus, constructing a hybrid methodology that draws on avant-garde art, deconstructive theory, cognitive science, and the work of painter and poet William Blake.

Marcel O'Gorman is an associate professor of English in the Faculty of Arts, University of Waterloo. Through his work in Waterloo's Critical Media Lab (which he founded), Dr. O'Gorman considers how humanities can adopt new practices for a technoculture that intervenes in the production of that culture rather than critiquing after the fact.

Marcel O’Gorman challenges us to think with and through the intimate relation between death and technology characterizing contemporary media. This theory adds an existential zest to the book, allowing the author to devise a creative diagnosis of what Bernard Stiegler has called the malaise of contemporary technoculture and also to contribute a potential therapy-one that requires embracing human finitude, infusing care into the process of technological production, and recognizing the vulnerability of all things, human and nonhuman.

In E-Crit, Marcel O'Gorman takes an ambitious and provocative look at how university scholarship, pedagogy, and curricula might be transformed to suit a digital culture. Arguing that universities were founded on the logic of print culture, O'Gorman sets out to reinvent the academic apparatus, constructing a hybrid methodology that draws on avant-garde art, deconstructive theory, cognitive science, and the work of painter and poet William Blake.

O'Gorman explores the ways in which digital media might help to restore the critical, intellectual purpose of higher education, which has been repressed by the technocratic structures that dominate the modern university. He argues that the revolutionary, socio-critical impetus that spurred deconstructive theory and transformed the humanities was lost in the initial attempts to digitize the literary canon and demonstrate the convergence of critical theory and hypertext. Humanities disciplines, he argues, must reposition themselves through the invention of humanities-based interdisciplinary programs capable of adapting to the post-print vicissitudes of a digital culture. E-Crit is thus essential reading for anyone concerned with the practice - and future - of the humanities in higher education.

Really hated having to read this book - the theory of digital media is not at all helpful - the field is too new, and the writer was unable to formulate coherent thoughts.

This book--like the work of Lev Manovich, Jay Bolter, N. Katherine Hayles and others--is an important and bold mapping of digital media in an era when the humanities seems to be in crisis. O'Gorman's book is refreshing because it avoids the pitfalls of digital utopianism on the one hand, and nostalgia for the print age on the other. Particularly excellent is his discussion of the "remainder" and "punning" as strategies that can be used to help chart a digital future that does not abandon humanistic traditions. Plus the writing is fresh and lively. Not only does O'Gorman's book offer compelling theory, but if offers practical insights about digital media-related program development. An important contribution to the field of digital media studies.
