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."

Series Title: Literacies
Description:

Hiphop Literacies is an exploration of the rhetorical, language and
literacy practices of African Americans, with a focus on the Hiphop
generation. Richardson analyzes the lyrics and discourse of Hiphop,
explodes myths and stereotypes about Black culture and language and shows
how Hiphop language is a global ambassador of the English language and
American culture.

Richardson examines African American Hiphop in secondary oral contexts such
as rap music, song lyrics, electronic and digital media, oral performances
and cinema and brings together issues and concepts that are explored in the
disciplines of folklore, ethnomusicology, sociolinguistics, discourse
studies and New Literacies Studies.
