"An original historical analysis of the intersection of accidents and media, this book resonates with the present climate of terror and risk, bringing a significant historical dimension to our understanding of the contemporary moment. Forensic Media demonstrates how thoroughly the technological accident drives and is driven by parallel developments in modern recording media. By raising crucial questions about the role of the mediated accident in modern debates on causality, evidence, knowledge, and narrative, it makes significant contributions to media archeology and the history of science."
— Karen Beckman, editor of Animating Film Theory
"Forensic Media is an innovative work that contributes substantially to the growing body of research in surveillance studies, risk studies, and design studies as they converge in the history of technology and media studies disciplines. Greg Siegel is an elegant and engaging writer, and this book will satisfy technology historians and film and media studies scholars alike." — Lisa Cartwright, author of Moral Spectatorship: Technologies of Voice and Affect in Postwar Representations of the Child
