New Faculty Books: Children and Technology, Art and Life Experiences of Black Women, and More
Technology and children’s development have become intertwined, but is it a healthy relationship? In her new book, “Technology’s Child: Digital Media’s Role in the Ages and Stages of Growing Up,” Katie Davis, an associate professor in the UW Information School, attempts to answer that question. Published by MIT Press, this book offers a framework for parents, teachers, and policymakers to navigate technology’s impact on children’s development.
Bettina Judd, an associate professor of gender, women and sexuality studies, presents a stunningly creative book in “Feelin: Creative Practice, Pleasure and Black Feminist Thought.” The book is focused on the experiences of Black women, taking cues from the cultural space of African American language and knowledge production, and delves into an array of topics while exhibiting creative works.
Additionally, the Center for Neurotechnology is soon releasing the eBook version of “Neurorobotics: From Vision to Action,” which covers the latest neuroscience and robotic technologies. The eBook includes in-depth discussions on how humans and robots perceive and interact with their environments.
