Sign Here! Handwriting in the Age of New Media features a number of articles from different fields, reaching from cultural and media studies to literature, film and art, and from philosophy and information studies to law and archival studies. Questions addressed in this book are: Will handwriting disappear in the age of new (digital) media? What happens to important cultural and legal concepts, such as original, copy, authenticity, reproducibility, uniqueness, and iterability? Where is the writing hand to be located if handwriting is performed not immediately 'by hand' but when it is (re)mediated by electronic or artistic media? Sonja Neef is junior-professor of European Media and Culture at the Bauhaus University Weimar/Germany. Josť van Dijck is Professor of Media and Culture at the University of Amsterdam and chair of the Media Studies department. Eric Ketelaar is Professor of Archival Science in the Department of Mediastudies of the University of Amsterdam, and Honorary Professor in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University, Melbourne. Sign Here! Handwriting in the Age of New Media is the fi rst part in the series Transformations in Art and Culture.
