image_mini (1)Shannon Mattern, Code and Clay, Data and Dirt: Five Thousand Years of Urban Media – now out with University of Minnesota Press.

A breathtaking tour through thousands of years of urban life and its attendant technologies, rewriting the history of our cities

Offering powerful new ways of thinking about our cities, Shannon Mattern goes far beyond the historical concepts of origins, development, revolutions, and the accomplishments of an elite few. Her vivid prose leads readers through a historically and geographically broad range of stories and takes media archaeology to the city’s streets, revealing new ways to write our urban, media, and cultural histories.

Code and Clay, Data and Dirt has style and method, originality and purpose. Each dig into this exceptional work has brought pleasure and scholarly respect.—

Malcolm McCullough, author of Digital Ground
