John Durham Peters, the A. Craig Baird Professor at University of Iowa, is interested in media and cultural history, communication and social theory, and understanding communication in its broad historical, legal, philosophical, religious and technological context. His forthcoming book, The Marvelous Clouds: Toward a Philosophy of Elemental Media (University of Chicago Press), argues that that media are more than carriers of messages -- They are the very infrastructures combining nature and culture that allow human life to thrive.
