Vision Statement

My research explores the implications that changes in the media landscape, including those generated by corporate social media and social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, have for the ways media theorists create, perform and circulate research and knowledge. It pays special attention to the medium theorists themselves employ most frequently: the linearly written, print-on-paper codex text. It asks, "to what extent can the ongoing changes in the media landscape that are shaping our memories and consciousness be understood by subjectivities that continue to live, work and think on the basis of knowledge instruments originating in a very different epistemic environment?"


Gary Hall is Professor of Media and Performing Arts and Director of the Centre for Disruptive Media at Coventry University. He is author of Culture in Bits (Continuum, 2002) and Digitize This Book!: The Politics of New Media, or Why We Need Open Access Now (Minnesota UP, 2008), and co-editor of New Cultural Studies: Adventures in Theory (Edinburgh UP, 2006), and Experimenting: Essays with Samuel Weber (Fordham UP, 2007). He has over 25 peer-reviewed publications in edited books and academic journals, including Angelaki, Cultural Studies, The Oxford Literary Review, Parallax and Radical Philosophy.

In 1999 he co-founded the open access journal Culture Machine, which was an early champion of OA in the humanities. In 2006 he co-founded Open Humanities Press (OHP), the first OA press dedicated to contemporary critical and cultural theory, which currently has 14 journals in its collective. An OHP monograph project, run in collaboration with the University of Michigan Library''s MPublishing, was launched in 2009.
