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: Anthropology of Color
Subtitle: Interdisciplinary multilevel modeling
Edited By: Galina V. Paramei

Description:

The field of color categorization has always been intrinsically multi- and
inter-disciplinary, since its beginnings in the nineteenth century. The
main contribution of this book is to foster a new level of integration
among different approaches to the anthropological study of color. The
editors have put great effort into bringing together research from
anthropology, linguistics, psychology, semiotics, and a variety of other
fields, by promoting the exploration of the different but interacting and
complementary ways in which these various perspectives model the domain of
color experience. By so doing, they significantly promote the emergence of
a coherent field of the anthropology of color.
