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."

Query:   I am a PhD pre-candidate doing a study on the Afrikaans and English of
Afrikaans native speakers in expatriate communities. I will be conducting a
pilot study over the next four weeks with the Afrikaans speaking community
in Greater London. In additional to the subject pools with which I have
already made contact, I am looking for additional participants.
Participants will fill-out a survey, have a sociolinguistic interview, and
will read word lists. If you are in the Greater London area and either, (1)
are an Afrikaans-native speaker and would like to take part in this study,
or (2) have contact with or knowledge of the Afrikaans speaking community
in Greater London, I would appreciate hearing from you. As of right now, I
have 7 confirmed participants, but would like to raise this number to at
least 15. Thus, any additional participants I could contact through this
forum, or advice on viable means of recruitment for Afrikaans-speakers in
London is solicited.
