The electronic word : democracy, technology, and the arts by Richard A Lanham( Book )

34 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly acclaimed collection of author Richard Lanham's witty, provocative, and engaging essays surveys the effects of electronic text on the arts and letters. The author explores how electronic text fulfills the expressive agenda of twentieth-century visual art and music, revolutionizes the curriculum, democratizes the instruments of art, and poses anew the cultural accountability of humanism itself. Claiming that the move from book to screen gives cause for optimism, not despair, the author proclaims that "electronic expression has come not to destroy the Western arts but to fulfill them."

The economics of attention : style and substance in the age of information by Richard A Lanham( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 848 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard A. Lanham here traces our epochal move from an economy of things and objects to an economy of attention. According to Lanham, the central commodity in our new age of information is not stuff but style, for style is what competes for our attention amid the din and deluge of new media. In such a world, intellectual property will become more central to the economy than real property, while the arts and letters will grow to be more crucial than engineering, the physical sciences, and indeed economics as conventionally practiced. For Lanham, the arts and letters are the disciplines that study how human attention is allocated and how cultural capital is created and traded. In an economy of attention, style and substance change places. The new attention economy, therefore, will anoint a new set of moguls in the business world - not the CEOs or fund managers of yesteryear, but new masters of attention with a grounding in the humanities and liberal arts."--Jacket
