“‘Blood is seawater,’ said the French biologist René Quinton a century ago. Melody Jue shows that seawater can be the lifeblood of a new ‘milieu-specific’ analysis that discards terrestrial biases in understanding media. Navigating across topics such as iron lungs, squid skin, and Google maps of the ocean floor, this book invites us to let our thinking go productively wild by transcending our lazily land-based concepts via a deep dive into the wet blue yonder.”

John Durham Peters, Yale University
