Kevin LaGrandeur’s Book Published

Kevin LaGrandeur, Ph.D., associate professor of English and director of NYIT technical writing programs, Old Westbury campus, has written the book, Androids and Intelligent Networks in Early Modern Literature and Culture: Artificial Slaves, published by Routledge Press. This scholarly monograph explores the creation and use of artificially made humanoid servants and servant networks by fictional and nonfictional scientists before the 17th century. It analyzes how representations of artificial servants in pre-empirical literature and culture reflect the promises and dangers of technological self-enhancement, as understood at the time, and how those reflections might resonate with today's technological developments. Read his NYIT profile.
