Edited Book: Understanding Spatial Media

I'm so pleased to learn that Understanding Spatial Media, an edited collection I worked on with Rob Kitchin and Tracey Lauriault, is finally published (we began a conversation about this project nearly three years ago)! Many thanks go out to all our 22 contributors. The table of contents is listed below. The project sets out to be a snapshot into a shifting discussion on the variety of spatial techniques and technocultures that permeate and delineate everyday life (for some). Thanks again, everyone!
