Transliteracies at UCSB

Transliteracies Logo - Events

I was able to attend the second day of the UC Santa Barbara Transliteracies Conference 2005 (”Research in the Technological, Social, and Cultural Practices of Online Reading”).

The announcement drew an “amen” from GTxA, while The Future of the Book called the conference topic statement: “gracefully defined” - and it was:

How are people today “reading” in digital, networked environments? For example, what is the relation between reading and browsing, or searching? Or between reading and multimedia?

While the term “reading” was slippery, expansive, and almost impossible to separate from “writing” throughout the proceedings of the second day, the conference seemed marked by a sense of urgency and excitement about the task at hand. I’ll post transcriptions of notes on sessions in a short series this week.
