Jonathan Sterne is James McGill Professor of Culture and Technology in the Department of Art History and Communication Studies at McGill University.
His work is broadly concerned with the cultural dimensions of communication technologies, especially their form and role in large-scale societies. He is author of MP3: The Meaning of a Format (Duke 2012), The Audible Past: Cultural Origins of Sound Reproduction (Duke, 2003); and numerous articles on media, technologies and the politics of culture. He is also editor of The Sound Studies Reader (Routledge, 2012) and co-editor of The Participatory Condition in the Digital Age (Minnesota, 2016). His new projects consider instruments and instrumentalities; mail by cruise missile; and the intersections of disability, technology and perception. His next book, co-authored with Mara Mills, is tentatively titled Tuning Time: Histories of Sound and Speed.
