Airplane Reading edited by Christopher Schaberg and Mark Yakich

Research output: Contribution to JournalBook/Film/Article reviewProfessional


Airplanes and airports take on a different air, at least for me, when a cultural theorist and a poet edit a volume about them.
Airplane Reading is a selection of stories collected from an online initiative by Schaberg and Yakich under the same title. Te book pushes the boundaries of academic text writing and invites scholars to look differently on notions of mobility. Te editors have brought together forty-five stories from personal experiences during air travels without any visible demarcation beyond the title for stories or thematic index-ing. However, one realizes the underlying connections while reading through the details of each story. We see reflections on airplanes and airports as objects of curiosity in the writings of Anna Leahy and Douglas Dechow, as well as two object-oriented ontology philosophers, Ian Bogost and imothy Morton.
