Hi Caitlin!
Since we’ve been having difficulty tracking down copies of Soctt Lucas’ The Immersive Worlds Handbook (and as part of our class assignment to find related texts on the subject), I’d like to offer to you, the class and the course, a PDF of his latest book, A Reader in Themed and Immersive Spaces (2016).
One of my PhD committee members, Markus Reisenleitner from our Humanities department, uploaded this text – the complete book – to Academia.edu. Both he and Susan Ingram (also from our Humanities department) have contributed chapters in this book. If you want to add this to future reading lists for the course, you can ensure all students will be able to have a copy. And best of all, it’s current and contains academic work from a variety scholars on the subject.
Here is the link to the PDF: https://www.dropbox.com/s/91svkwjqwk3e0bo/A_Reader_In_Themed_and_Immersive_Spaces.pdf?dl=0
It’s too big to share as an attachment (18 MB), but if you want to upload it to the Future Cinema website, it can be downloaded from there.

At this late date I don’t expect you will be able to read the entire book, but selecting one chapter in addition to the chapter i uploaded for all of us to read would give us a good foundation for conversation!

*n.b. I have also uploaded the file to the class site: http://www.yorku.ca/caitlin/readings/A_Reader_In_Themed_and_Immersive_Spaces.pdf*
