Reviews

"Jennifer Gabrys deftly synthesizes fields and lines of inquiry in weaving a signature story of our age, working across intellectual planes and variegated systems and networks. Program Earth is a tantalizing account of digital, citizen-sensing worlds in the making."-Kevin McHugh, Arizona State University"Impressive and original, Program Earth is not just concerned with the collection and dissemination of data, but also-and more crucially-with the transformation of these data and with their effects."-Steven Shaviro, author of The Universe of Things: On Speculative Realism

"Full of stimulating ideas and provocative reframings of environmental concerns that are sure to spark further research."-American Journal of Sociology "Readers will revel in extensively written case studies as well as the contemplative opportunity to challenge, with renewed conceptual tools, the urgent notion of the environment."-Cultural Geographies"Jennifer Gabrys' book is a timely publication that combines empirical insights with a necessary speculative attitude in an emerging field."-Tecnosciencza
