Transliteracy Lecture

Transliteracy lecture by Sue Thomas from IOCT on Vimeo.

This talk is drawn from the article Transliteracy: Crossing Divides, written with my DMU colleagues and published at First Monday in December 2007. I've presented it numerous times over the last year and now have this video version. But be warned – the lecture covers a lot of ground and it's 42 minutes of me talking, so not for the faint-hearted. Maybe one day I'll have time to slice it into bite-size chunks but for the moment I'm afraid there's only this long version. It was delivered to a mixed group of postgraduate students from the Online
MA in Creative Writing & New Media, the IOCT Master's degree, and
students working on Music Technology, in the IOCT on October 24th, 2008

  1. Sue,
    I recorded and reprocessed the start of your lecture where you define transliteracy.
    Listening back very carefully to the reprocessed audio, writing down phrases and fragments that chose to reveal themselves.
    I discovered within the reprocessed recording of your talk this definition of transliteracy:
    torn marks
    zeros and threes
    seek people
    repeat and repeat and repeat
    the animal of all animals

  2. Paul, this is fascinating. Thanks. Since I’m currently engaged in analysing language for my Wild Surmise project I’m especially interested in what you’ve done, and surprised by the words you came up with. I’m going to have to think about the implications of them.
