Series description

Experimental Futures brings together theoretically innovative, ethnographically rich interdisciplinary work that is emerging in response to the uneven networks and differentiating cultures brought about by globally extended, as well as locally produced, biotechnologies, information technologies, digital humanities, bio and electronic arts. Experimental Futures is home to scholarship produced at the intersection of anthropology, science and technology studies, medicine, political economy, and studies of new media and arts. Experimental Futures calls for a new generation of robust switches to translate legacy genealogies into new and different public futures. Culturally and cosmo-politically, Experimental Futures provides alternative proving grounds of modernities attuned to the current wave of globalization in which the calls are sent from and routed through switches, transducers, and translations in Amsterdam, Istanbul, the hinterlands of Hong Kong, the networking of Bandung, the organizing of Puerto Alegre and the conflicted political economies of Mumbai; and from the historical contexts of epistemologies and epistemes of the twentieth century to the competing promissory bets on futures, on worlds to come.

How do series work?

To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it.

Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia, disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series.

Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title (eg., "Chronicles of Prydain (book 1)"). By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the | character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, "(0|prequel)" sorts by 0 under the label "prequel."

What isn't a series?

Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such (see Wikipedia: Book series). Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations, on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification (eg., avoid lumping Jane Austen with her continuators).

Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question. So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works.
