What Is Transliteracy? An Introduction from Sue Thomas.

The conference is about to kick off, and I've managed to grab Sue Thomas, from DMU, to give us an introductory explanation of the idea of Transliteracy: 

It feels to me that Transliteracy's time has come, that a lot of people are looking for ways to explore the literacies surrounding particular technologies, networks and environments, that go beyond notions of 'raw language skills'.

The conference will explore the questions raised by the term, and look at how it applies to the creative sector, to business and education.
