Brian Hochman's Book "Savage Preservation" Now Available

We are proud to announce that Professor Hochman’s new book, Savage Preservation: The Ethnographic Origins of Modern Media Technology,  was published earlier this month by the University of Minnesota Press.  

Congratulations, Professor Hochman!

Savage Preservation is an eye-opening account of the mutually entangled origins of ethnography and the meanings of modern media: recorded sound, color photography, documentary film. Not only does BrianHochman enrich his readers’ sense of culture as a concept available to historical change, he demonstrates convincingly that North American media studies remains haunted at its core by the racial ‘science’ of earlier generations.”
