In 2017, the new journalInternet Historieswas founded. As part of the process of defining a new field, the journal editors approached leading scholars in this dynamic, interdisciplinary area. This book is thus a collection of eighteen short thought-provoking pieces, inviting discussion about Internet histories. They raise and suggest current and future issues in the scholarship, as well as exploring the challenges, opportunities, and tensions that underpin the research terrain. The book explores cultural, political, social, economic, and industrial dynamics, all part of a distinctive historiographical and theoretical approach which underpins this emerging field.

The international specialists reflect upon the scholarly scene, laying out the field''s research successes to date, as well as suggest the future possibilities that lie ahead in the field of Internet histories. While the emphasis is on researcher perspectives, interviews with leading luminaries of the Internet''s development are also provided. As histories of the Internet become increasingly important,Internet Historiesis a useful roadmap for those contemplating how we can write such works. One cannot write many histories of the 1990s or later without thinking of digital media -ãand we hope thatInternet Historieswill be an invaluable resource for such studies. This book was originally published as the first issue of theInternet Historiesjournal.
