Authorship and Agency

Simon Biggs

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This text discusses how our understanding of authorship has evolved over the past few decades and how this process is now being effected by developments in network and communications technologies. Situating the discussion in relation to post-structuralist theory, Actor Network Theory and the anthropological work of James Leach the impact of network technologies are considered, with particular attention to the emergence of distributed forms of authorship and models of expanded agency.

Presented as a keynote at Critical Mobilities 2010, Society for the Humanities Conference, Cornell University, Ithaca, USA.
