Transliteracy at Beyond Boundaries, 22 Sept 2009, Loughborough University

Today I ran a workshop on Transliteracy at
Beyond Boundaries: Facing interdisciplinary challenges in humanities A conference for postgraduate students in the East Midlands 
It was an interesting and thought-provoking event, and especially good to see such a mix of disciplines in one place. In my workshop there was a doctor retraining to be a forensic scientist, a linguistics specialist, a librarian, a computer scientist, and artists working in quite a few different fields. They drew some great diagrams of their personal networks and the literacies to be found within them, and we had a very illuminating discussion. I promised to share my somewhat basic slides, so here they are. Download Transliteracy workshop EMUA September 2009

Plus – as discussed in the workshop, Kate Hayles' provocative paper Hyper and Deep Attention: The Generational Divide in Cognitive Modes (although personally I'm not sure I agree that it is relevant to age.)
