    Dear Humanists:

    I hope the following will be of interest to at least some of us, e.g., with
    regard to * notions of literacy and critical thinking, and the possible
    impacts on these notions resulting from shifting from print to electronic
    culture; * various hermeneutical traditions and their relation to
    manuscript, book, and electronic media; and * the shape and cultural roles
    of humanistic traditions and disciplines - including logic and critical
    thinking, and the role of the Reader, the Scholar, and the Librarian (Eep
    Talstra) - vis-a-vis changes in media brought about by the emergence of
    computers and computer networks.

    Please post and distribute as appropriate. Apologies for duplications and
    cross-postings -
    Forthcoming book announcement.

    Critical Thinking and the Bible in the Age of New Media, edited by Charles
    Ess. (Lanham, Maryland: University Press of America, 2004)

    Critical Thinking and the Bible in the Age of New Media collects
    contemporary scholarship to address the question: What does critical
    thinking about the Bible - e.g., as applied in Jewish and Christian
    traditions of interpretation, theology, and our very understanding of what
    "Scripture" means - "look like" as the Bible (_the_ Book of the age of
    print) is transmediated from print to electronic formats?
    This volume, the first of its kind, is made up of contributions originally
    developed for a conference sponsored by the American Bible Society.
    Contributors represent a wide diversity of religious traditions and academic
    disciplines--philosophy, biblical studies, theology, feminism, aesthetics,
    communication theory, and media studies. Ess's Introduction summarizes the
    individual chapters and then develops their broader significance for
    contemporary debates regarding media, postmodernism, and the possible
    relationships between faith and reason.
