N. Katherine Hayles, Director of Graduate Studies in the Program in Literature at Duke University and widely regarded as the most illuminating public intellectual writing on technology and culture today, talks about her latest book: How We Think: Digital Media and Contemporary Technogenesis, Published by the University of Chicago Press. “With a rift growing between digital scholarship and its print-based counterpart, Hayles argues for contemporary technogenesis—the belief that humans and technics are coevolving—and advocates for what she calls comparative media studies, a new approach to locating digital work within print traditions and vice versa."
