Inside Higher Ed blog on Digital Literacy

Dear all,

This is a post from this morning’s Inside Higher Ed about digital literacy–the first of three. It offers a bleak forecast: “My concern is that literacy in our culture is at risk. Or at least a certain kind of literacy, one that is essential to the quality of society most of us believe in: reading and writing, critical thinking, incisive intelligence and verve grounded in civic discourse.”

best to all,
Jennifer

About Jennifer Summit

I am a professor of English at Stanford University. My research interests generally focus on the medieval and early modern periods, but I've become increasingly interested in how we might use some of the methodologies and questions that have been generated by the academic subfields of the history of reading and the book to understand the uses of literacy today.
