Virtual reality and augmented reality technologies have been around for some time. There’s a substantial body of literature that’s worth reading to develop an understanding of how immersive media has evolved and the philosophical and media theoretical perspectives that preoccupied the early pioneers and continue to resonate today.
In 2018 I began working on an annotated bibliography of foundational readings and today I’ve started sharing it on this site as Immersive Media Bibliography. The work is also available as a Google Doc at https://tinyurl.com/vr–aiab/.
If you have any suggestions for additional readings or would like to comment on what’s included (or not included) in the bibliography, please make edit suggestions right in the Google doc or let me know by using the contact form on this site.
