Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"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."

Title: Writing, Society and Culture in Early Rus, c. 950-1300
Written By: Simon Franklin
Description:

This is the first comprehensive study of the origins and early uses of
Russian writing. Simon Franklin examines a wide range of writings, from the
parchment manuscripts of the Orthodox Church, through the Novgorod
birch-bark documents, to inscriptions on stone and metal. He analyzes the
texts from a variety of perspectives, and presents fascinating insight into
this crucial aspect of Russian history. The impressive scholarship and
idiosyncratic wit of the volume commend it to specialists in Russian
history and Russian literature.
