This page serves as an index to the Critical Reader of “New” Media course materials, including its nextbook, self-assessment materials and other materials, run by me and for the Technosemiotics project run by Auli Viidalepp, including a Nextbook and the page for the Winter School on AI and Society held in January 16-19 2023.
In order to access the nextbook, follow the link: A Critical Reader of “New” Media. The nextbook acts as a companion of the course as well as an independent study resource. Remember to read the instructions before using it.
The course materials can be accessed here. These are materials used during class (presentations and such) that can help you if you also use the other resources.
Self-Assessment Materials are available on our Moodle website. You can also access these offline materials for practice.
A guide on navigating the world of media theory can be found here.
Check the Semiosphere distance toy. This is a simple script to determine the distance of a given cultural object from the cultural canon of a semiosphere. It’s only a guesstimator, so take it at face value!
You can access the Technosemiotics Nextbook on this link. This Nextbook is maintained by Auli Viidalepp.
Here you can find the Technosemiotics Winter School website, including information on the workshop, presentations given and general information. This is also mantained by Auli Viidalepp.
