Book Review: Haunted Data: Affect, Transmedia and Weird Science

Pedwell, Carolyn (2019) Book Review: Haunted Data: Affect, Transmedia and Weird Science. Review of: Haunted Data: Affect, Transmedia and Weird Science by Blackman, Lisa. Theory, Culture and Society, . pp. 1-4.


Re-animating salient controversies from ‘weird science’ and ‘alien phenomenology’, Blackman explores how networked and computational media are changing the evolution of science and interrogating established ‘truths’ concerning embodied communication and less-than-conscious cognition. Bringing together media studies, critical psychology, feminist science studies, queer theory, cultural studies and affect theory, the book develops a manifesto for how we might engage critically and imaginatively with digital communication to develop a Future Psychology and a genuinely Open Science.
