Andrea Lunsford to present talk Nov. 4: "Writing and Reading in the Digital Age"

16 Oct 2013    

Public Talk:  “Writing and Reading in the Digital Age”
Monday, Nov. 4
3:30 p.m. - Bailey Library, Andrews Hall

Lunsford is sponsored by the UNL Research Council, UNL Departments of English, Communication Studies, Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education, and the Robert Hough Memorial Fund

Lunsford will address questions about literacy and technology. Are Twitter, Facebook, and texting eroding our students’ abilities as readers and writers? Lunsford says no. We invite you to hear Lunsford, from Stanford University, present findings garnered from a landmark longitudinal study of students’ writing practices in and beyond college. This study has received national press coverage in numerous media outlets, including The New Yorker and The Chronicle of Higher Education. Notably, Lunsford finds that new media are not compromising, but are dramatically changing—and even increasing—students’ literacy practices. Please join us for Lunsford’s talk about writing and reading in the digital age.
