This page provides a living/in-progress bibliography of foundational resources for Haptic Media Studies. We’ll be adding more to this list and annotating over the next few months.
David Katz, The World of Touch (Hillsdale, NJ: Lawrence Erlbaum, 1989). Originally published as Der Aufbaur der Tastwelt in 1925. Sprawling and pugilistic book that confronts and extends the tradition of experimental research on touch. Kruger’s translator’s notes provide context for both Katz’s experiments and the intellectual context within which he was working.
