Social Theory Re-Wired

We just discovered this interesting resource produced by Routledge: Social Theory Re-Wired.

A rich collection of web-based materials—including interactive versions of key texts, open spaces to write and reflect on readings, biographical sketches of authors, and dozens of supplementary sources—that transports social theory from its classic period to the vibrant and complex world of now.

It’s worth signing up to have a proper look around. Upon closer inspection, it doesn’t quite live up to its initial promise – for instance the ‘interactive readings’ aren’t all that interactive. But they deserve credit for exploring the potential forms that a project like this could take and there’s certainly things of value on the site.
