“Though Taylor’s ideas, on his own account, underwent a lengthy period of consideration and development, his book seems breathlessly urgent.” Leland Poague, Screening the Past.

This ‘flat content ‘ weblog is to explore our contemporary media culture & use through the prism of Jacobean dramaturgy.

In its modest way, it makes attempts, amongst other things,  to update  Film/Hitchcock studies into the contemporary arena.

It is based on the book publication from Intrnational Academic Book Publishers Peter Lang GmbH. Original research began  at the Institute of Education, The University of London.

The site is themed according to chapters and includes PDF download extracts from the book.  As the book develops into an account of contemporary Internet culture, so the website itself engages with on-going contemporary developments of specific relevance – films, news events, conferences, as they emerge.

Jacobean Visions also has a rolling presence on http://twitter.com/JacobeanVisions, see sidebar.
