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."

Description:

Directions in Empirical Literary Studies is on the cutting edge of
empirical studies and is a much needed volume. It both widens the scope of
empirical studies and looks at them from an intercultural perspective by
bringing together renowned scholars from the fields of philosophy,
sociology, psychology, linguistics and literature, all focusing on how
empirical studies have impacted these different areas. Theoretical issues
are discussed and solid methods are presented. Some chapters also show the
relation between empirical studies and new technology, examining
developments in computer science and corpus linguistics. This book takes a
global perspective, with contributors from many different countries, both
senior and junior researchers. Broad in scope and interdisciplinary in
nature, it contributes with the state-of-the-art developments in the field.
