Digital Humanities Virtual Book Talk: Melody Jue (UCSB): Wild Blue Media: Thinking Through Sea Water
Melody Jue (UCSB): Wild Blue Media: Thinking Through Sea Water (Duke University Press, 2020)

Jue's research is at the cutting edge of eco-criticism and "blue humanities." Come hear her talk about her new book, which (from the publisher): "destabilizes terrestrial-based ways of knowing and reorients our perception of the world by considering the ocean itself as a media environment—a place where the weight and opacity of seawater transforms how information is created, stored, transmitted, and perceived. By recentering media theory on and under the sea, Jue calls attention to the differences between perceptual environments and how we think within and through them as embodied observers. In doing so, she provides media studies with alternatives to familiar theoretical frameworks."
