Sarai Reader #3

Sarai Editorial Collective

“Shaping Technologies,” the third in the path breaking series of Sarai Readers, is a unique new collection of writings on technology and culture with a strong emphasis on original writing from South Asia.

The book brings to the fore a series of situations and predicaments that mark the encounter between people and machines, between nature and culture, and between knowledge and power.

The issues covered span a wide range — from the cognitive and ethical dilemmas that beset the engineer, to the legal and cultural implications of copying in a digital realm, from software as art to the history of sciencefiction, from wireless manifestoes to the domestication of photography, fromkitchen utensils to airplanes, from mobile phones to kerosene lamps, frombody nets to biotech, from reproductive technologies to technologies ofreproduction, from computers to radios and from coal mines to call centres.

A cutting edge collection of original writing and images by theorists,critics, photographers, philosophers, engineers, activists, artists,designers media practitioners and programmers.
