Doug Sery

Senior Acquisitions Editor

All Editors

Doug Sery was originally hired by the MIT Press as Computer Science Editor in the late 1990s. However, a serious examination of MITP’s backlist led him to reformulate his publishing focus with the idea that art, technology and design would soon become inseparable. He is now the acquiring editor for New Media, Game Studies, Computer Music, the Digital Humanities and the occasional project that inhabits a liminal space in our list. Doug can be reached at and his Twitter profile is @dougsurlee.
