Stanford Text Technologies asks whose voices are heard in the human record from the earliest times to the present day
We are especially interested in textual objects—how they are designed, made, and function and what they mean culturally and socially.
New Book on Text Technologies
Text Technologies: A History, by Elaine Treharne and Claude Willan, has just been published by Stanford University Press. Offering multiple case studies in the long span of book history (from cave paintings to contemporary digital technologies), this innovative and interactive book provides a new theory of reading text, and demonstrates how much can be gained from seeing the textual object in its conceptual and material entirety. We are delighted that the book is available in hardback and in paperback here: https://www.sup.org/books/title/?id=28275
