I love ordering things from Amazon. Normally we use News from Nowhere as our book merchant but i was under a tighter budget this time ordering a stack of books by our Touched Speakers and so went for the easy option. So far we have in:
English is Broken here. Coco Fusco
The Art and Films of Lynn Hershman Leeson
A guide for Female Interrogators. Coco Fusco
Why do People Hate America. Ziauddin Sardar. Merryl Wyn Davies
Clicking In. Hot Links to a Digital Culture. Edited by Lynn Hershman Leeson
What do Muslims Believe?. Ziauddin Sardar
Along with the Alphonso Lingis books we already had in the office…
I can’t recommend any of the new ones yet as I’m trying to get through the documenta 12 Education books (more about them later i think) before the end of April but I’m probably going to go for Coco Fusco’s A Guide for Female Interrogators first. I’ll post a review at a later date.
If you have been to any of our talks or intend to go to any in future and would like recommendations on further reading, where to get the books or if you have any questions for the speakers themselves (I can happily pass any questions on) etc then please let us know. You can post a comment below this blog.
