Professor Jussi Parikka’s book 'Insect Media' has been translated into Polish. 'Owady i media' is published by the Krakow based press Księgarnia Akademicka. The Polish edition features as part of the “Interpretations” series, which focuses on cultural studies, performance studies and new historicism.

The series has previously published books such as Judith Butler’s Antigone’s Claim, Hans-Thies Lehmann’s Postdramatic Theatre, Erika Fischer-Lichte’s Transformative Power of Performance, and Thierry Bardini’s Junkware.

Parikka’s Insect Media (University of Minnesota Press) won the prestigious “Anne Friedberg Award for Innovative Scholarship” in 2012 (Society for Cinema and Media Studies, SCMS). In earlier endorsements, professor Eugene Thacker (The New School, New York) wrote about the book: “With Insect Media, Jussi Parikka offers a theory of media that challenges our traditional views of the natural and the artificial. Parikka not only understands insects through the lens of media and mediation, he also unearths an insect logic at the heart of our contemporary fascination with networks, swarming, and intelligent agents. Such a project requires the ability to interweave cultural theory with a deep understanding of the sciences—something for which Parikka is well-suited. Most importantly, Insect Media reminds us of the non-human aspect of media, communication, intelligence. Insect Media is a book that is sure to create a buzz.”
