The Assemblage Brain: Sense Making in Times of Neurocapitalism

THIS PAGE WAS UPDATED ON FEB 7th 2016

Minnesota University Press have confirmed that The Assemblage Brain: Sense Making in Times of Neurocapitalism will be published in early spring, 2017.

As a taster of what’s in store here’s the table of contents and some of the artwork. In many ways this is a continuation of the Virality project, but I’ll start to reorient this blog to pick up on some of the specific themes between now and 2017.
