He is Professor of Media and Performing Arts in the School of Art and Design at Coventry University, UK, author of Culture in Bits (Continuum, 2002) and Digitize This Book!: The Politics of New Media, or Why We Need Open Access Now (Minnesota UP, 2008), and co-editor of New Cultural Studies: Adventures in Theory (Edinburgh UP, 2006) and Experimenting: Essays with Samuel Weber (Fordham UP, 2007). He is also founding co-editor of the open access journal Culture Machine, co-founder of the Open Humanities Press and co-editor of OHP's Culture Machine Liquid Books series. He is currently developing a series of politico-institutional interventions - recently dubbed activist scholarship or 'deconstructions in the public sphere' - which draw on digital media to actualise or creatively perform critical and cultural theory; and writing two monographs: Media Gifts, designed as a follow-up to Digitize This Book!; and There Are No Digital Humanities.
