Richard Kern: Language, Literacy, and Technology

Language, Literacy, and Technology

Author: Richard Kern, University of California, Berkeley
Cambridge University Press, 2015

(ref.: Igor Štromajer, Oppera Internettikka)

From the origins of writing to today’s computer-mediated communication, material technologies shape how we read and write, how we construe and share knowledge, and ultimately how we understand ourselves in relation to the world. However, communication technologies are themselves designed in particular social and cultural contexts and their use is adapted in creative ways by individuals. In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time. Showing how people have adapted visual forms to various media as well as to social needs, this study culminates in five fundamental principles to guide language and literacy education in a period of rapid technological and social change.

Curating Your Memory

Curating Your Memory
Curating Your Memory is an evening about deleting, curating and dealing with big data on a personal scale.

V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media, Rotterdam
The Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam

V2_: Thursday, 28 November 2013 at 8 pm


French philosopher Jacques Derrida made the claim that ‘the mutation in technology changes not simply the archiving process, but what is archivable – that is, the content of what has to be archived is changed by the technology’. What he means is that the style of the content is transformed through new processes and production. Moreover, the relation to time and space created by the fact that within mere seconds one can reach someone in every corner of the world, has also affected the content. Of course this also effects power relations, decision-making and accountability. It is generally known and accepted that archives construct a specific account of history, many things end up in an archive, but even more remains outside, to be forgotten. Questions like who is in charge of an archive, who selects, and for whom is the archive, have been plaguing archives from the beginning. One could argue that the digital accelerates this process, so how to relate to this new situation? What is the value of digital memory and how to deal with big data on a small scale? These questions form the start of an evening with three perspectives.

With Robert Sakrowski, Dragan Espenschied and Igor Štromajer, moderated by Annet Dekker.

This public event is organised by Piet Zwart Institute, Dept of Media Design – Networked & Lens-Based, and made possible with the support of Goethe Institute and V2_.
