Summer 2019 Reading List

As usual, I’ve given myself a pretty strict reading schedule for this summer. I’ll be working through these, a chapter a day, while working on my dissertation proposal, working on journal articles, and managing the Journal of Communication Inquiry. Here’s what I’m planning to get through this summer:

  • Millennial Monsters by Anne Allison
  • Modernity at Large by Arjun Appadurai
  • Playing to the Crowd by Nancy Baym
  • Artificial Unintelligence by Meredith Broussard
  • The Rise of Network Society by Manuel Castells
  • Spotify Teardown by Maria Erickson
  • Automating Inequality by Virginia Eubanks
  • Weaving the Dark Web by Rob Gehl
  • The Constitution of Society by Anthony Giddens
  • The Conditions of Postmodernity by David Harvey
  • The Qualified Self by Lee Humphreys
  • How We Became Post-Human by N. Katherine Hayles
  • Nine Algorithms That Changed the Future by John MacCormick
  • Weapons of Math Destruction by Cathy O’Neal
  • The Procrastination Economy by Ethan Tussey
  • Violence by Slavoj Zizek

For fun, I’ve been working my way through His Dark Materials (can’t wait for the HBO adaptation now), Tinkerings by Paul Harding, The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer, The Rap Yearbook by Shea Serrano, and City On Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg.
