This issue, we feature columns from Eric Freedman, Alex Munt, Chuck Tryon, and
Ted Gournelos.

This issue's columns in brief:

"In Search of Bigfoot: The Use and Obsolescence of Bionics" by Eric Freedman:
NBCs resurrection of (The) Bionic Woman has prompted me to think through the
contemporary relevance of bionics, and map its reintroduction against the
popular imaginary of the mid-1970s.

S, M, L, XL: The Question of Scale in Screen Media" by Alex Munt:
Munt examines the fragmentation of the contemporary screenscape - and the
screen-anxiety it produces.

"Is Internet Politics Better Off Than It Was Four Years Ago?" Chuck Tyron:
Will YouTube provide a partcipatory space for citizens in the upcoming election?

"Convergence as Conflict: The Tasing of Andrew Meyer" by Ted Gournelos:
The recent events at the University of Florida cause us to consider how protest
functions within the campus environment.

We look forward to your visit and encourage your comments.

Best wishes,
